Posted: Updated:

A single car accident on Spillway Road near the Ross Barnett Reservoir on Saturday has put one man in the hospital.

Around noontime, the patient was airlifted to UMC in critical condition, according to the Reservoir Fire Department. The male driver of the Toyota Celica had been heading toward Highway 471 when he apparently lost control, spun off into a ditch, and hit a tree. His identity is not being released.

Spillway Road was blocked off as rescue crews worked the scene.

The Reservoir Patrol, Rankin County Sheriff's Department, and the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks also responded.
