On Wednesday, a crash in Jackson sent a Hinds County Youth Court employee to the hospital. According to WAPT News Channel 16, the incident happened on Terry road. The driver reportedly lost control of his SUV, drove through a church parking lot and traveled another 150 yards before striking a tree and a wall outside of the Carmelite Monastery. At this time, there’s no word on why the driver, who works as a process server for the Hinds County Youth Court, lost control of his vehicle.
Driver Injured in One-Vehicle Crash
Nuns from the monastery ran outside to assist the victim before first responders arrived. Although he was apparently conscious on the scene, there was some speculation on whether or not he had a medical issue that contributed to the wreck. At this time, we do not know the extent of injuries involved or the man’s current condition. The cause of this wreck is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement authorities.
