One person was transported to the hospital following a early Saturday afternoon head-on collision at Suitors Crossing in western Alcorn County.

Multiple sheriff’s deputies were among a hand full of law enforcement agencies who responded to the two vehicle wreck on U.S. Highway 72 and County Road 604 around 1:15 p.m.

The accident happened when a Tishomingo County female driver of a Pontiac G6 pulled from County Road 604 into the westbound Highway 72 path of a Nissan Pathfinder driven by a McNairy County, Tenn., male.

Both vehicles suffered heavy damage in the crash. Airbags were also deployed on both vehicles when emergency responders arrived on the scene.

Three Magnolia EMS ambulances responded to the wreck, however only the female driver of the G6 was taken to Magnolia Regional Health Center with injuries.

A unit from the Corinth Fire Department also responded, in addition to the Kossuth Volunteer Fire Department, first responders and the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

The wreck closed the westbound lane of Highway 72 for more than one hour. Traffic was rerouted around the wreck site by way of County Road 604.

A few corrections to your article: It was not a head on collision at all. The lady in the Pontiac G6 pulled out in front of the people who were in the Nissan Xterra (not a Pathfinder). She took damage directly to the driver's side of her vehicle. The female passenger in the Xterra was taken by ambulance to Magnolia Hospital, and the driver of that vehicle was also taken to the hospital for a fractured sternum. The driver of the G6 ended up being airlifted. It was a terrible wreck.
