LEE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A crash on Highway 45 happened around 11:00 P-M Tuesday between the Green Street and Verona Road exits.
 
Police say a southbound pick-up pulling two trailers was traveling below the speed limit when another driver rear-ended it.

That's when officials say those trailers fish tailed. One broke loose and rolled into the path of a Comcast truck.

The Comcast truck swerved to miss the trailer, flipped several times, crossed the median, and landed in the north-bound lanes.

One officer says the driver of the Comcast truck was shaken but that he was alert.

Police don't believe his injuries are life threatening.

There's no word on that other driver's injuries.

This wreck sent at least two people to the hospital.
