RANKIN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Ten people, including children, were involved in the wrecks on Highway 49 just south of Pocahontas.
Several were transported to local hospitals.
The first wreck occurred around 2:00 Sunday afternoon involving a red pick up truck and a gray Altima.
Then a half an hour later, as a black Camero slowed to pass the wreck... it was involved in an accident with a gold Altima and a white Escalade carrying children.
None of the kids seemed to be injured.
Several people were taken to area hospitals.
Mississippi Highway Patrol officers shut down all northbound lanes for nearly two hours.
All lanes are now clear.
