Wreck off I-55

A two-vehicle wreck that injured one driver blocked southbound lanes of traffic on Interstate 55 just south of the Lake Dixie Springs exit for about half an hour Wednesday afternoon. State troopers responded to the wreck around 2:30 p.m. to find an overturned late-model silver Pontiac Grand Prix overturned in the median. The driver of the Pontiac, who could not be immediately identified, was transported to Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center by ambulance with minor injuries. The crash was caused when a red Ford pickup truck collided with the rear of the Pontiac, sending it into the median where it overturned, Highway Patrol spokesman Trooper Craig James said.
