HARRISON COUNTY -- No one suffered serious injuries Thursday morning when a car overturned north of Gulfport.
Sheriff's Capt. Phil Marr said the accident occurred when a 39-year-old woman driving a Toyota Sequoia eastbound attempted to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone on Robinson Road.
When the woman pulled into the other lane, Marr said, she struck a Toyota Camry head-on and overturned into a roadside ditch.
"The investigation is still ongoing, but it appears the young man driving the Toyota Camry, when he saw her vehicle in his lane, he started going towards the ditch trying to avoid her vehicle," Marr said. "Apparently, she realized there was an (oncoming) vehicle so she went towards the ditch and they still met head-on."
Harrison County Fire Marshall Pat Sullivan said the two people had undisclosed injuries. Neither injury is believed to be life-threatening, he said.
Both people were taken to Memorial Hospital at Gulfport.
Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said both vehicles suffered heavy damage. He said the driver of the Sequoia was cited for improper passing and no proof of liability insurance.
Harrison County Fire Services, the Harrison County Sheriff's Office and AMR all responded to the accident.
