Two People Transported to Hospital after Interstate Crash

Meridian, Miss. Two people were taken to the hospital after a single-car crash on Interstate 59 earlier on Saturday evening.

It happened a little before 6:00 near the 149-mile marker on Interstate 59 North, coming into Meridian. The mother of one of the passengers says her son and his wife hydroplaned off of the road due to heavy rain. Their SUV slid down the embankment and knocked over a tree.

The man and woman's injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
