FedEx : MHP: 4 fatalities overnight, FedEx driver with critical injuries in Hancock accident

11/29/2015 | 12:38pm US/Eastern

Nov. 29--HANCOCK COUNTY -- On the busiest travel weekend of the year, Mississippi Highway Patrol responded to four fatal accidents and an overturned tractor-trailer Sunday morning that has one westbound lane closed near Exit 2 in Hancock County near Stennis Space Center.

Cpl. Benjamin Seibert said the truck accident happened at 6:40 a.m. Sunday when a FedEx vehicle ran off the road into the median and overturned.

A Life Flight was requested but could not respond due to weather conditions.

The driver, Dwight Miska, 55, of West Jordan, Utah, was transported by AMR to a hospital in Louisiana with life-threatening injuries.

Westbound traffic will be down to one lane indefinitely while the contents offloaded to another truck.

Seibert said at 9 a.m. that traffic was backed up for a couple of miles.

Overnight the Highway Patrol was called to a one-vehicle accident in George County.

Seibert said Curtis Randall Baxter, 44, of Semmes, Ala., was driving a 2004 Ford Focus westbound on Mississippi 98 when he went off the north side of the road and overturned several times.

Baxter was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected, Seibert said. He died at the scene.

Saturday night the Highway Patrol responded to four single vehicle fatalities, he said, and at least three out of the four drivers were not wearing a seatbelt and were ejected,

"Something as simple as a seatbelt," he said.
