NATCHEZ, MS (WLBT) - In Natchez five teenagers were injured in a crash early Friday morning.
Officers got the call just before 2 a.m. That a pickup truck had hit a tree at the intersection of Canal and Madison Streets. The driver and two passengers were seriously hurt.
Two people in the truck had to be removed from the wreckage with the jaws of life. They were taken to University Medical Center in Jackson. Two other passengers were treated and released.
Officers say it appears no one in the truck was wearing a seat belt. A blood sample from the 17 year-old driver has been sent to the state crime lab for analysis.
