Two individuals escaped a would-be fatal accident on Highway 80 on Wednesday night about 3/4 of a mile inside Hinds County.

The call was dispatched to Hinds County but then rejected, believing the response should be addressed by Warren County. Luckily, the parties involved in the crash only suffered minor injuries.
