The vehicle Wash and Williams were driving, a Nissan, crashed into a tree around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and erupted into flames. After they extinguished the fire, it took about an hour for first responders to free the two men from the vehicle.
Wash was taken by ambulance to a helicopter at Clear Creek Golf Course, which then took him to UMMC. Williams was taken to UMMC by ambulance.
Pace took an English bulldog that was also in the vehicle to Animal Medical Clinic for treatment.
Vicksburg and Warren County firefighters along with multiple Warren County sheriff’s personnel worked in tandem to extinguish the flames and rescue the passengers from the wreckage.
