Bad weather may have caused two accidents

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Friday's wet weather sends two people to the hospital another accident kills a man.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol says just before noon, a Ford pickup hydro-planed and slammed into at tree. It happened in the eastbound lane of I-20 about a mile from the east Brandon exit. Two people inside the truck were transported to local hospitals.

A female passenger suffered serious injuries to her head, and her legs, after the tree crushed her door. No other vehicles were involved.

In an accident in Hinds County, a tree fell on a pickup truck possibly because of the weather.

 Captain Steve Pickett with the sheriff's department tells us one person inside the truck was killed. It happened around four this afternoon on Cox Ferry road in rural Hinds County, west of Flora.

We don't know the victim's name or what exactly caused the tree to fall on his truck.
