HINDS COUNTY, MS (WLBT) -

One man was injured in an accident on I-20 eastbound, just east of the Bolton Exit. The accident involved an 18-wheeler and a tow truck and occurred just before 5 p.m.

The 18-wheeler was eastbound in the right hand lane, but was slowing for traffic in the construction when his trailer was rear ended by a tow truck towing a repossessed vehicle.

The 18-wheeler driver was not injured but the tow truck driver had to be cut out of his vehicle with the jaws of life. Air Care is en route to take him to UMMC.

MHP is investigating the accident.
