Four people were injured Wednesday – three of them critically – in an automobile accident on Edwin Ladner Rd. in Pass Christian, according to Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara.
The accident occurred when a Chevy Trailblazer driven by Jessica E. Caccioppo, 23, collided with a pickup truck driven by Lew W. Miller, 49, Brisolara said in a news release.
Jessica Caccioppo is listed as observation only, Brisolara said. Christopher B. Caccioppo, 18, is on life support and in critical condition; Jonathan Brown Jr., age two, also a passenger in Caccioppo's vehicle, is listed in critical condition at Ochsner's Medical Center with multiple fractures and a possible traumatic brain injury. Miller is listed in a stable but critical condition.
Brisolara said an investigation is ongoing, however preliminary findings lead investigators to believe that speed and road conditions were factors in the crash.
The investigating officers are Deputy Ed James and Deputy Craig Necaise.
