HAZELHURST - A two-car crash made the slow stream of traffic heading south on Monday even slower. Two SUVs were heading south on Highway 51 when they hit each other near Hazelhurst at about 1:30 this afternoon. That caused damage to both cars.
"One person apparently came over the hill and hit a car that was slowed in the road. It appears to be minor injuries," said Hazelhurst Fire Chief Pat Winger.
The driver of one car was taken to Howard Young Medical Center in Woodruff. The crash forced emergency responders to put in even tighter traffic controls in the area.
