Head-on collision injures two

FULTON – A Thursday afternoon head-on car crash resulting in serious injuries is being investigated by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

Trooper Ray Hall said troopers responded early Thursday afternoon to wreck on Highway 78 near Peppertown in the east-bound lanes.

Hall said Ian Mobley, 18, of Pontotoc, appears to have lost control of his 2003 ford Taurus and crossed the median where he collided head on into a 1993 Oldsmobille driven by Ashley Buse, 29, of Booneville.

Mobley was airlifted to the North Mississippi Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Buse, was also transported but with minor injuries.

Hall said they are unsure how Mobley’s vehicle was able to cross the median’s safety cable barriers.
