JACKSON, Miss.-- The last two weekends in Mississippi haven’t been kind to motorists on the roadways in the Magnolia state.
Last holiday weekend multiple lives were taken in crashes across the state and this weekend echoed that scene.
On Highway 8 near Greenwood Springs Saturday night 39-year-old Albert Hall was killed when officials say he lost control of his van wrecking.
During the one car accident Hall wasn’t wearing his seatbelt according to reports and he died shortly after being airlifted to Tupelo at the North Mississippi Medical Center.
Hall’s 7-year-old son was strapped-in during the incident and he was airlifted to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital where his condition is still unknown.
To Baldwyn now in north Mississippi where the results of a wreck there on the same night left a 23-year-old Ashley Gaston of Memphis, Tenn dead and two others injured.
Officials say the wreck happened at the intersection of McDonalds and Highway 45 late Saturday and only involved the one car.
According to WCBI and the report from the Prentiss County Coroner Greg Sparks, she succumbed due to severe head trauma caused from the wreck.
And last down to Vicksburg where a teenager lost his life in an accident late Friday night.
Police say 16-year-old Cannon Lampkin died after his Chevy Tahoe rolled over on Duncan Road after he lost control.
The six passengers that were also in the Tahoe said the vehicle ended up rolling into a ditch on the south side of the road and came to a stop after Lampkin was ejected from it.
The Chevy Tahoe landed on Lampkin according to Warren County officials and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
As for the six passengers, all were checked out and released to family after not sustaining any serious injuries.
Officials so alcohol wasn’t a factor in the wreck and he was a student at Warren Central High School.
