Weekend Wrecks Kill Toddler, Other Mississippians

TUPELO, Miss.–Several wrecks claimed lives over the weekend, including a toddler and an elderly north Mississippi woman.

It was Saturday night when a Ford F 250 driven by 30-year-old Brett Prince hit a Ford Expedition on Hwy. 18 in Hinds County, west of Jackson. In that wreck, one-year-old Christopher Salas died and four members of his family were injured. Salas was in a car seat.

In Webster County, 75-year-old Elizabeth Perry of Ackerman was killed Saturday morning when her car was rear-ended just east of Mathiston. The truck that hit her was driven by 58-year-old James Cork of Webster County. He was taken to the hospital with his injuries.

It was a wreck Thursday near Tupelo where 27-year-old Latonya Clifton of Verona hit a light pole. She died Saturday at North Miss. Medical Center. She lost control and was partially ejected. Law enforcement was looking into the possibility she was not wearing her seat belt.
