Cars vs. homes in Wesson, Brookhaven — Wesson also looking for hit-and-run suspect

A Brookhaven woman was hospitalized after ramming her car into the back of a house in Wesson Saturday.  The same thing happened in Brookhaven with another driver the next day.

Lt. Keith Stevens with the Wesson Police Department said Marquita Lenoir was traveling southbound on East Railroad Street when the car left the road and hit a fence and a tree before crashing into the utility room of a house at 1104 East Railroad St. about 10:50 p.m.

The driver was taken to University of Mississippi Medical Center.

The collision remains under investigation, Stevens said.

Brookhaven fire fighters responded Sunday about 7:18 a.m. to a collision at 515 South Second St. The car hit the back of the house owned by Elmer Smith, causing some damage.

“It knocked the house off the blocks a little bit,” said Brookhaven Police Chief Kenneth Collins.

Collins said the driver, Victor Diggs, lost control of his car due to medical reasons.

Also in Wesson, a Nissan truck backed into a 2006 Hyundai car about 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of Ashley’s 51 Stop. The crash damaged the car’s front passenger door, Stevens said.

The Nissan truck is an unknown year and model and is possible white or silver, Stevens said. The truck left the area and headed north on Hwy. 51. The driver was described as an older white male.

If anyone knows the identity of the driver, they’re urged to call Wesson Police at 601-643-2211.
