Two investigations of fatal collisions in Jackson are underway. One person was killed in a crash involving an 18 wheeler and a motorcycle this morning on Medgar Evers Boulevard near Boling Street. A woman, identified as 21 year old Briana Carter, died last night in an accident at the intersection of McCluer & Forest Hill Roads.
Concern is being expressed about vulnerable adults being dropped off in Jackson. Ward Three City Councilman Kenneth Stokes says the practice must be stopped. He also says with the state of budget cuts, there is a likelihood the activity will increase and steps must be taken to correct the situation.
