One Warren County driver has been sent to the hospital after crashing into a tree Saturday morning.
Just before 5 a.m. Saturday, OnStar notified Vicksburg-Warren 911 about a crash on Freetown Road near Amos Road. It was later determined that the crash was approximately 3 miles northeast of that intersection on Freetown Road.
The driver lost control of his Chevrolet Malibu, striking a tree. The impact caused a full air bag deployment.
Vicksburg Fire Department, Rescue, Fire Medic 30 and Culkin Engine 209 responded to the scene.
The driver was transported to Merit Health River Region for examination while the passenger was examined at the scene and released.
The crash was investigated by Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy Thomas McBride (WC-49).
