A Union County man was involved in a one-vehicle accident on Wednesday morning.

Marlon Hall, 70, ran off the road on Highway 178 East near his home at around 9:45 a.m.  

According to an eyewitness, Hall’s pickup truck ran into a stump, completely uprooting it and flipping the truck, then hitting another stump before wrapping around a tree. 

A neighbor called 911 and Mississippi Highway Patrol and the Union County Sheriff’s department responded to the scene.  

 Hall had received several injuries, including a severe cut on his arm.  He was airlifted to a hospital in Memphis, Tenn.
