LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Two trucks collide on busy Highway 45 Friday sending one tumbling down the highway.

But the highway patrol says neither driver was seriously injured.

Troopers say 63-year-old Eddie Ridings of Aberdeen was northbound on Highway 45 in northern Lowndes County when his red Ford F-150 was clipped by a Chevrolet Silverado driven by 66-year-old Jimmy L:owe of Caledonia.

Lowe was trying to cross Highway 45 from Land Road to Spurline Road. Ridings’ truck rolled, spilling tires and other items along the highway.

He was treated at Baptist Golden Triangle Hospital.

The accident happened at about 12:30 p.m. today.
