FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A multiple vehicle accident in Flowood Saturday afternoon sent at least one person to the hospital. 

Flowood Police Chief Richie McCluskey said the accident occurred on Lakeland Drive, near Lakeland Place Drive around 2:30 p.m.

McCluskey said the accident involved Flowood PD Corporal Adam Nelson and three other vehicles.

McCluskey said Corporal Nelson was taken to a local hospital.

Chief McCluskey said, "The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating the accident, however our preliminary review reveals the multi-vehicle accident involved three (3) additional vehicles that started when Officer Nelson was rear ended". 

"Our primary concern is the well being of our officer and fortunately his guardian angel was with him today. He is doing well and from everything we know so far he sustained a broken leg, lacerations and is in stable condition," McCluskey added.

At this time we do not know if anyone else involved was injured.
