This is a new feature for the Vicksburg Daily News. Over the course of the week we publish a lot of photos. Often times the photos are lost in the story, or we hold back from posting a photo because the subject matter may be sensitive. We will never post grotesque photos of an accident victim, for example. In these picture you may see some heavy damage to a vehicle or property.
Viewer discretion is advised.

A head on collision on Wisconsin during the heavy rainfall.

This accident looks a lot worse than it actually was. That white truck had massive damage and the 18 wheeler is on it’s side. The man in the white truck only had minor injuries.

Another accident that looks a lot worse than it is. The driver and passenger of the white SUV were injured and transported. The child in the back seat, in a child’s safety seat, was uninjured. Put your child in their child seat. They will survive.
