Flowood, MS – Paula Prem Killed in Crash Caused by Suspect Fleeing Police on Lakeland Dr
Flowood, MS (August 01, 2021) – Flowood police and fire were called to investigate the scene of a fatal crash on the morning of Saturday, July 31st.
A report shows that Flowood police attempted to stop a vehicle for reckless driving on Lakeland Drive in the area of Lakeland Commons. The driver attempted to evade the officer by first turning into a nearby shopping mall. The driver then crossed over the centerline and drove directly into oncoming traffic. Eyewitnesses report seeing the suspect crash head-first into another vehicle.
Police have since identified the driver of the wrong-way vehicle as 34-year-old Michael Watson who is in critical condition after undergoing emergency surgery.
Police also stated that 33-year-old Shanarne Williams, who was three months pregnant, was also killed in the collision as was her six-year-old daughter.
The driver of the non-involved vehicle who was also killed was 63-year-old Paula Prem.
This accident is under investigation by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Paula Prem, at this time.
