Okolona, Miss. (WCBI) – An Okolona man escaped serious injury after the hay wagon he was pulling was hit by an 18-wheeler.
The crash occurred on Highway 45 Alternate, just north of Highway 8, in Chickasaw County about 11:40 AM on Thursday morning.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol says the 18-wheeler clipped the rear of the wagon. The impact caused 64 year-old Jackie Ray’s tractor to overturn on top of him.
Ray was taken to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo with non-life threatening injuries.
The tractor-trailer, driven by 52 year-old Otis Riley, veered of the highway. Riley wasn’t injured.
State troopers continue to investigate the crash.
