Raleigh, MS — Police think that icy roads may have been a factor in the Wednesday wreck on Highway 18 that claimed the life of a local Raleigh woman. The accident happened just outside Raleigh on Highway 18 and involved an 18-wheeler truck and a Toyota pickup truck. Heather McDaniel was identified as the victim.
Police said that Christopher Barrett was driving the pickup truck, carrying McDaniel and a 19-month old baby as passengers. Near the city of Raleigh, police said, an 18-wheeler stalled on the ice and caused an accident with Barrett’s pickup.
The impact from the wreck killed McDaniel immediately and left both Barrett and the baby with non-serious injuries. The news reports showed the 18-wheeler laying on its side along the highway.
The investigation is still being conducted, but no charges have been filed as of Thursday afternoon.
