BANNER, Miss. (WCBI) – An investigation is ongoing into the motor vehicle accident that caused one to be airlifted from the scene. Lorie Roberts, of Bruce, was transported via helicopter from the scene on Hwy. 9W north of Banner with a suspected broken leg.

Roberts was driving south toward Bruce when she hit a pickup truck driven by Larry Pettigrew. Pettigrew told investigators a third vehicle was on the road which caused him to swerve. The head on collision with Roberts was the result of this.
