Three injured in crash after vehicle rolls over on I-10 near Franklin Creek Road

A vehicle crashed on Interstate 10 after crossing the Escatawpa River, injuring three people, a state trooper said.

The crash occurred Wednesday in a westbound lane west of Franklin Creek Road Exit 75, Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said.

The vehicle ran off the highway after coming over the bridge about 12:45 p.m., Elkins said.

The vehicle ran down an embankment, struck a tree and came to rest on the driver’s side of the vehicle, he said.

The three were taken to Singing River Hospital with injuries that were determined to be minor.

One person in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt and two were not, Elkins said.

The crash tied up traffic in the right-land lane for a little more than an hour.
