“I can confirm that Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves was involved in a traffic accident today on Highway 49 in Collins,” said his spokeswoman Laura Hipp. “Lt. Gov. Reeves was a passenger in a Mississippi Highway Patrol vehicle and neither he nor his assigned trooper was injured. The Lt. Governor wishes to thank the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the Covington County Sheriff’s Office, the Collins Police Department and the Collins Fire Department for their rapid response to the accident.”
The passengers in the other car were transported to the hospital for minor injuries. Apparently a car pulled out in front of his vehicle. WDAM has more details.
