Fisher Ferry crash victim identified


Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace has released the name of the crash victim from last night’s accident on Fisher Ferry.

Sheriff Pace reported, “At 7:40 p.m. we received a call regarding a single vehicle accident in the 1600 block of southbound Fisher Ferry. A 2002 Nissan Altima driven by 18-year-old Maiya Wilson had left the road on the left shoulder and hit a guide wire off a utility pole and careened off into a deep ravine.”

The Vicksburg and Fisher Ferry fire departments worked for some time to extract Wilson from the car. The top of the vehicle was reportedly removed in the effort to safely remove her. She was transported to Merit Health River Region.

The accident is under investigation but the Sheriff wanted to clarify that alcohol was not involved.

Maiya Wilson was, at last report, still at Merit Health River Region. She is expected to recover from her injuries.
