JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

Jackson Police were busy Saturday morning with a slew of accidents on our interstates and highways. Black ice was on the roads and is thought to be a factor.

One of those accidents proved fatal. 

The State Highway Patrol said four vehicles were involved in a wreck around 7:45 a.m. Saturday at Highway 80 and the Pearl River bridge. 

The driver of a Chevy pickup truck, 42-year old Jimmy Davis of Jackson, was killed in the head-on collision. A gray Dodge Ram slammed into the concrete barrier.

The Highway Patrol said some of the other victims were taken to UMMC with varying injuries.
