WIGGINS, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say Deeonica Tramaine Goss, of Wiggins, died at the scene of a three-vehicle accident on Mississippi 26 just outside the Wiggins city limits in Stone County.

Sheriff’s Lt. Lewis Husband tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1GBsPVw) Blake W. Hunter, of St. Amant, Louisiana, was trapped in his pickup and fire-rescue teams used the Jaws of Life to free him. Hunter was airlifted to Forrest General Hospital.

The sheriff says the third driver, John Wayne Freret, of Wiggins, appeared uninjured.

Husband says Freret was stopped behind a vehicle that was waiting to turn off the highway Thursday afternoon.

He says Hunter was approaching Freret’s car from the rear and could not slow in time to stop.

Hunter’s pickup clipped the rear corner of Freret’s car, then collided head-on with Goss’ car.
