OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) -- Two people suffered serious injuries in a traffic accident on Highway 45 Alternate in Chickasaw County Wednesday morning.

A Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesperson says the accident happened around 2:15 a.m. just north of County Line Road.

Holliday was airlifted to the North Mississippi Medical Center and Herring was taken to NMMC by ambulance.

The accident remains under investigation.
