Alabama man dies on Mississippi highway

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Highway Patrol says an Alabama man died when his car flipped in George County, and a FedEx driver from Utah was seriously injured when his truck overturned on Interstate 10 in Hancock County.

Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Cpl. Benjamin Seibert says 55-year-old Dwight Miska of West Jordan, Utah, was taken to a hospital in Slidell, Louisiana, after his truck overturned Sunday morning.

The Sun Herald reports that a helicopter was requested but could not fly because of bad weather.

Seibert tells WLOX-TV that 44-year-old Curtis Randall Baxter of Semmes, Alabama, was ejected from his Ford Focus when it ran off a highway Saturday night in George County.

Siebert says that was among four fatal one-car wrecks statewide.
