Teen crashes SUV into tree near St. Patrick High

A teen was injured in a one-car crash Friday on Mississippi 605 just south of Mississippi 67, a Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman said.

Chase Elkins, MHP public information deputy, said deputies arrived at the crash about 6 p.m. The area is near St. Patrick Catholic High School in north Harrison County.

Elkins said a 16-year-old boy was northbound on 605 in a 2002 Toyota Highlander when he ran off the right side of the road and hit a tree. The SUV flipped over, Elkins said.

The boy was taken to Merit Health Biloxi with minor injuries.
