One Killed in Log Truck Accident on State Highway 413 in Choctaw County, MS

Choctaw County, MS — January 5, 2023, one person died in a two-vehicle crash involving a log truck on State Highway 413 in Choctaw County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:15 p.m. on SH 413 near the town of French Camp. Preliminary investigation suggests only that a log truck was northbound on the highway as a passenger vehicle was southbound nearby. Investigators believe the two collided for unknown reasons, during or after which the log truck overturned.

One unidentified person died in the crash. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Investigators don't seem to have much of a handle just yet on how the vehicles collided on Highway 413. If they were headed opposite directions before the collision, did someone cross over the center line? If so, which driver did so and why? Was it in or out of their hands?

I don't mean to get lost in the weeds here; I just think it's important to get a clearer picture as soon as possible, and clarifying important details is part of that. The news didn't have many specifics, but one thing they seemed quite certain of is that someone lost their life--and that's more than enough reason to find out exactly what happened, why it happened, and if it could or should have been avoided. That person's loved ones deserve to know the whole story, so I hope someone's working hard on bringing it to them.
