Shaw also disputed an initial report from the Mississippi Highway Patrol regarding his seat belt.
"I was absolutely wearing my seat belt at the time of the crash," he said. "Once I realized we had been in a wreck, I took my seat belt off because I knew I needed to get out of the car and then I passed out."
MPH public information officer Chase Elkins said the Mustang was traveling north on U.S. 49 in the right lane when it was hit in the rear by the Pathfinder that was also traveling north.
Elkins said the drivers of both vehicles were taken to Garden Park Medical Center with moderate injuries.
Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said units from American Medical Response, Harrison County Fire Service, Lizana and the Harrison County Sheriffs Office assisted MPH with the crash, which stopped traffic on U.S. 49 for about 35 minutes.
