HIGHWAY MISHAP Jay Mercer, left, Bryant Lucus, David Bonner and JonPol Jones, all of the Clarkdale Volunteer Fire Department, work an accident Thursday afternoon in the northbound lane of U.S. 45 near County Road 484 in Clarke County. Two people were sent to Riley Hospital after their sports utility vehicle flipped and came to rest on its side near the edge of the highway. Emergency workers at the scene said one of the vehicle's tires apparently blew, causing the driver to lose control. Photo by Paula Merritt / The Meridian Star.
