Flowood, MS – Elderly Woman Dies in Multi-Vehicle Accident on I-55Mississippi Legal News
Flowood, MS (August 31, 2019) – A massive multi-vehicle pile-up that included a tractor-trailer, among other vehicles, took place on Interstate 55 on Monday, August 26th.
The three far right lanes of traffic were closed off on the northbound side of I-55 right by the exit for Pearl Street.
Officers from both the Flowood Police Department and the Jackson Police Department were on the scene. Firemen from the Flowood Fire Department and an Emergency Medical Services team from Pafford were also there to provide medical attention to the crash victims.
Among the wreckage was a white, 2010 Cadillac DTC driven by Carolyn Crechale, an 81-year-old resident of Raymond. Crechale had sustained life-threatening injuries during the accident and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital. Sadly, she passed away from her injuries just a short while later.
The tractor-trailer ended up on the northbound side of I-55 down in a ditch away from the roadway. Several other vehicles were scattered across the interstate in assorted lanes of traffic and in various stages of disrepair.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Carolyn Crechale, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
