Crash Snarls Traffic

A wreck without serious injuries caused a traffic jam on Interstate 59 south of Meridian early Friday afternoon.

Traffic was backed up from the enterprise exit after a vehicle pulling a U-Haul crashed.

"And the vehicle, the trailer, something happened and it caused the vehicle to sway. As the vehicle was swaying, it lost control, hit the bridge rails twice, causing it to overturn and disconnect," said Trooper Andrea Richardson of the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

The family involved in the one-vehicle wreck was passing through Meridian and did not require medical treatment.
