A 7-year-old child was airlifted to USA Medical Center on Saturday morning after a crash on I-10 in Hancock County.
A seven-year-old child was air-lifted to an Alabama hospital on Saturday morning after a two-car collision on I-10 in Hancock County that blocked traffic for more than two hours.
Mississippi Highway Patrol Spokesman Chase Elkins said Saturday that the accident occurred near the two-mile marker in the east-bound lane of I-10.
Apparently, Elkins said, a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Laine Hue of Gonzalez was traveling east on I-10 when it left the roadway.
When Hue attempted to correct his path, his vehicle clipped a Toyota Tundra that was driven by Jeremy Hobbs of Madisonville.
The Silverado apparently then lost control, rolled into the median and struck trees, Elkins said. Hue's son, Logan Hue, 7, was a passenger in the vehicle, officials said.
Laine Hue was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Elkins said.
Hobbs was apparently not injured.
Logan Hue was air-lifted via Life Flight to the University of Southern Alabama Medical Center with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
He apparently suffered a broken collar-bone, but was later released, officials said.
No citations have been issued in the case so far, but it remains under investigation, Elkins said.
