LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Lowndes County man has died after being involved in a three-vehicle wreck on Highway 12 Sunday.
Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant said William Mixon, 65, was driving west on the highway when he collided with another vehicle head-on. The impact sent his vehicle into the lane of an oncoming vehicle which hit him as well.
It happened just before noon on a stretch of highway approximately three miles from the Alabama state line.
The coroner said Mixon was transported to Baptist Memorial-Golden Triangle where he was pronounced dead on arrival from multiple trauma. A number of other people were transported and those injuries are still being assessed, but Merchant said he didn't believe they were life-threatening.
Merchant said it wasn't clear whether Mixon was in the correct lane or not when he was struck.
The accident remains under investigation.
