JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two people were taken to the hospital after being injured in a six-car pile up in the northbound lanes of I-55 in Lincoln County. The accident occurred just before 4 p.m. at mile marker 39.

MHP spokesman Brandon Fortenberry said it all started when a vehicle pulled over to the side of the Interstate because of bad weather. An 18-wheeler hit the vehicle and both went of the side of the road.

The rear of the 16-wheeler was still blocking traffic and was hit by a pick up truck after a second 18-wheeler hit the pick up, and somehow, two other vehicles ended up in the middle of this mess.

No word on the condition of the two people transported.
