JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Rankin County woman escaped serious injury Wednesday afternoon when a tanker truck clipped her Pontiac Solstice.

The accident occurred just before noon at I-55, near Pearl Street. According to a witness, the truck started to change lanes and could not see the small sports car next to him.

The two vehicles collided, and the Pontiac was forced in front of the truck as the two came to a screeching halt.

The female driver was able to walk away from the ominous scene and was taken to a local hospital for observation.

Jackson police are investigating. Traffic was backed up for a short time.
