Patrol spokesman Master Sgt. Johnny Poulos says a Lucedale man was killed and another seriously injured in a one-car accident Thanksgiving day on Mississippi Highway 613.
Poulos says Bayron C. Hernandez was pronounced dead at George County Hospital. The driver, Noe H. Pena of Lucedale, was injured and is in George County Hospital.
Poulos says the car apparently ran off the road and overturned several times.
The Highway Patrol only reports fatalities that occur on roads it patrols.
The holiday weekend, which began 6 p.m. Wednesday, continues through midnight Sunday.
Through Thursday, Poulos says the patrol has written 2472 citations, made 36 DUI arrests and investigated 61 accidents.
