Oxford, MS (August 4, 2022) - At least one person was hurt in a vehicle collision that happened in Oxford on Thursday, August 4. At around 11:30 a.m., the collision occurred at the Walmart near the 2530 block of Jackson Avenue West.
After the incident, access to the area from the outside was immediately restricted. Paramedics were reportedly called to a traffic collision involving two or more cars. The injured people were treated by the on-duty medical responders.
Officers from the local police department are in charge of the ongoing crash investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Mississippi High-Speed Crashes
In 2005, there was evidence that speeding contributed to roughly one-third of all fatal traffic accidents. When travel speed increases by one percent, the rate of crashes that result in injuries rises by about two percent, the rate of crashes that result in severe injuries rises by approximately three percent, and the rate of crashes that result in fatalities rises by approximately four percent. When compared to the average speed of the other cars in the area, a vehicle's speed that is much faster is associated with an increased risk of being involved in a collision.
