Highway Patrol IDs man who died in George County wreck


The Mississippi Highway Patrol has identified a man who died in a two-vehicle wreck in George County on Saturday afternoon.

Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said Bryan Williams, 51, of Lucedale, died from injuries suffered in an accident on Mississippi 63 just north of Mississsippi 98 in George County.

Elkins said Williams was headed eastbound across the highway when a Ford F-250 pickup truck hit his Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. Elkins said Williams appeared to have driven out in front of the Ford pickup, driven by Michael Broussard.

Broussard's truck hit the driver-side door of William's Tacoma, Elkins said.

Williams was alone in the Toyota. George County Coroner DeeAnn Miller said Williams died at the scene.

Broussard and two children were taken to George County Hospital with mild injuries, Elkins said.

The accident is under investigation.
