Laurel, MS (November 8, 2021) - On Thursday afternoon, November 4, an 18-year-old woman was injured after a car accident caused by a tire blowout in the Laurel area.
Local authorities revealed that Kalyn Nicole Jordan was headed southbound on MS-15 in a Nissan Armada at the time of the incident. As she approached John Griffin Road, her front right tire blew out. This caused her SUV to travel off the roadway and overturned into a ditch.
Jordan was able to exit the vehicle by the time emergency responders arrived. She reportedly suffered severe facial trauma and was taken to a local hospital by ambulance. No updates on her condition have been provided at this time.
An ongoing accident investigation is being managed by local authorities.
Our thoughts are with Kalyn Nicole Jordan and her family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Car Crashes in Mississippi
Mississippi has one of the highest annual traffic-related fatality rates in the country, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This means Mississippi residents are more likely to be critically injured in an accident than residents of other states. Approximately 22% of drivers in the state do not wear seat belts. Automobile accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury in Mississippi. Many people in the state have a bad reputation for driving recklessly.
A car accident takes a long time and a lot of effort to recover from. In the aftermath of an unexpected collision, many people are unaware of their legal rights. Medical bills, repair costs, and lost wages can all have significant financial and emotional consequences. This puts accident victims in a financially and emotionally vulnerable position. Insurance companies have the potential to make victims feel even more alone and befuddled. This only exacerbates the difficulty of the situation.
Contact a Laurel car accident lawyer if you don't have all of the information you need to file a personal injury claim.
