Accident backs up 82 on Monday morning


It certainly was not what commuters were wanting on a Monday morning, but U.S. 82 was backed up for some time due to a three-vehicle accident.

Details are scarce at this time on the events that led to the wreck, but The E-T has learned that one of the drivers was coming eastbound from Washington County when the crash occurred at the corner of Moody Street and 82.

Emergency responders were quickly on the scene, and at least one person was airlifted to a Jackson hospital.
