Jackson, MS – Two Firefighters Injured During Crash on Canton Mart Rd

Jackson, MS (May 01, 2021) – Two firefighters from the city of Jackson sustained injuries on Friday, April 30th while they were responding to the scene of a vehicle collision.  

The accident took place after fire and rescue teams were dispatched to the scene on Canton Mart Road at the I-55 Frontage Road.

While they were working the scene, the driver of the wrecked vehicle regained consciousness and slammed the vehicle into reverse.

As he did so, one of the car’s doors that had been left open hit two of the responding firefighters. The car then backed into the rescue pumper and the driver fled the scene.

Both firefighters were transported via ambulance to the University of Mississippi Medical Center for treatment of non-critical injuries.

The driver of the vehicle, James Lucas of Natchez, was apprehended in the area of Ridgewood Road and Adkins Boulevard and was charged with possession of narcotics with intent after he was found to have $20,000 and narcotics on his person.  

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
