Two people were treated for injuries following a Tuesday afternoon highway crash that left both vehicles severely damaged.

The 4:11 p.m. crash happened at the intersection of U.S. Highway 72 and Mississippi Highway 2 in Corinth as a car turned in front of a pickup, according to the Corinth Police Department’s report on the crash.

Brandon C. Mansfield, 27, of Meadowbrook Drive, Corinth, was driving eastbound in a 2008 Ford F-350 when a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Doris Peters, 65, of County Road 615, attempted to make a left turn from Highway 72 onto Highway 2. Police Chief David Lancaster said the truck struck the car on the right side.

The report states that the car failed to yield the right of way.

The car had severe intrusion with the impact pushing the passenger side door almost up to the console, he said. There was no passenger in the vehicle.

Lancaster said both drivers were lucky to have escaped the crash without more serious injury.

Both were taken to Magnolia Regional Health Center.
