BIGGERSVILLE – A teenager was transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center following a two-vehicle wreck Friday.

An 18-year-old male was driving a Dodge Dakota Sport mid-size pickup when he attempted to cross U.S. Highway 45 from County Road 514 to County Road 409.

A Ford F-250 pickup, traveling northbound on Highway 45, struck the rear of the Dodge after it apparently failed to yield.

The driver of the F-250, who was carrying a trailer of tires, was not injured in the accident which occurred around 1 p.m.

Debris was scattered across CR 409 from the accident which knocked off the left-rear tire of the Dodge after impact.

The Ford's bumper and grill were both heavily damaged.

The accident is being investigated by the Mississippi Highway Patrol. Biggersville Fire & Rescue, Alcorn County Sheriff's Department and Magnolia Regional Health Center EMS all responded to the accident.
