A head on collision took place on Fisher Ferry Road near the intersection of Shenandoah Road this morning. Emergency officials responded to the call at 8:30 a.m. and, upon arrival, discovered a 2000 Cadillac Escalade driven by Beverly Darnell, 27, and a 2016 Honda HRV driven by Joshua Sparks, 23.

No fatalities were reported but both Darnell and Sparks were transported to medical facilities by the Vicksburg Fire Department Ambulance. Darnell was taken to the University Medical Center and Sparks to the Central Mississippi Medical Center.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace reports that Darnell was traveling south and Sparks, north when the collision took place. This resulted in the Escalade overturning before landing on its wheels. Sparks was trapped in his vehicle. The Vicksburg Police Department and Fisher Ferry Fire Department worked together to free him.

There will be more details to come as the accident is being investigated by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.
