A crash involving a vehicle and a farm tractor on U.S. Highway 61 South has resulted in serious injuries. Police have completely blocked the southbound lanes just past Dana Road.

The accident occurred near the intersection of Old Cain Ridge Road around 4:50 p.m. Sunday.

Both the driver of the tractor and the driver of the vehicle were injured. The driver of the vehicle was treated on the scene for an injury to their arm.

An air ambulance was called to transport the tractor driver to the hospital. Due to impending inclement weather in the area, the victim will be transported by regular ambulance. Reportedly, his injuries are serious but survivable.

This is a developing story. The Vicksburg Daily News will provide updates as we know them.
