Truck leaves roadway crashes near busy Vicksburg intersection

Traffic along Halls Ferry Road, near the busy Pemberton Square Boulevard intersection, was slowed Tuesday morning as emergency units responded to a one-vehicle accident near Chick-fil-A.

Multiple units from the Vicksburg Fire Department, along with officers from the Vicksburg Police Department, responded to the accident that occurred just after 7 a.m.

The Vicksburg Police Department is investigating the accident where the vehicle, a truck, appears to have been traveling north on Halls Ferry Road before leaving the roadway and crashing through the rose bushes near Chick-fil-A. The truck also appeared to have struck a large power pole located near the flower bed.
