My condolences to the family. Hopefully the deceased was an organ donor. He can still save a lot of lives.

That intersection of FLC, Church rd, mt Helm, and old 471 is a mess...

Wrong location. It was at the entrance to Buckingham...but, yes, that’s a terrible intersection.

How many people have to die or get hurt on this road? It is crazy how people act when no traffic enforcement taking place. This road is worst than I-220. Pray for all families that have been touched by these accidents on Old Fannin Road.

The two deaths on that road I am familiar with are this one, which involves a motorcycle. The other involved ejection from a Jeep with a young driver using alcohol (underage drinkers). I don't see how "traffic enforcement" other than the much hated DUI checkpoints would help. And, I get sick of the constant pro booze crap here. Just sick to see the huge increases in cirrhosis and liver failure among 18-34 year olds now being reported, too. It's fun to ride a bike or Jeep, and I've owned both. But lake areas on summer weekends are crawling with drunks, and he who is less protected loses the battle in a collision, regardless of who is at fault. And spare us the preaching about Prohibition. We are the fattest, stupidest, drunkest state in the nation, already.

I'd like to see the reports of cirrhosis in the 18-34yr olds there buddy... Because every national report states that drinking has declined among the 16-24s for a good while now. Happening in states with much less alcohol regulation, soooooo..... Your prohibition speak is pretty much lame-duck "mama said" bs these days, and everyone knows it.

Not the same poster as above, but previous poster is correct. Declination in drinking does not mitigate the fact that death, or mortality from liver disease is, indeed, on the rise in young people/adults. This BMJ study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health whose statistics were used and corroborated by the CDC finds that deaths of 25-34 year olds are increasing, and it is alarming the medical community. There are many reasons for this that about which are conjectured in these articles. This information in no way has anything to do with this tragic accident or anything else that has happened at this intersection. This is merely a response to the previous poster.

One woman is dead and one person is in the hospital after a vehicle accident Friday in Rankin County. The Rankin County Sherrif's Department received a report of a one-vehicle accident in the 400 block of Fannin Landing Circle at 5:15 a.m. on Friday morning.

Rankin County Deputies, the Reservoir Fire Department, Rankin Emergency Operations Center and Pafford Ambulance Service responded to the scene. There they found a Mitsubishi SUV that looked to have run off the highway and rolled over on its roof.

The driver, identified by Rankin County coroner David Ruth as Janell Nicole Taylor, 23, and an unidentified passenger were both ejected from the vehicle. First responders were unable to save Taylor, who succumbed to her injuries at the scene of the accident. The passenger was transported to University Medical Center and their condition remains unknown

The accident is currently under investigation by Rankin County Deputies.

I just wish more people understood geography and road names.... the roads might. E safer if people actually knew which roads to talk about....

Why do you always mention Pafford ambulance? Do you own the company?

7:19 what's your problem? He's quoting the release sent out by the sheriff. Her's not making any sort of endorsement.

In the law man's world, they call for the ambulance so often and it is always by the name of the service. For instance it goes like this, Rankin 99 to Dispatch, go ahead 99, roll Pafford 1x code 3. Or some such thing. On TV you hear them call it the bus and when cities have the fire dept doing it, they may say the same thing. Not really anything anyone thinks about unless you hate Pafford.

Low traffic, serene county road, if you can drive worth a flip, you won't wreck. Every wreck = human error.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
