18-Wheeler Hits Jackson (MS) Fire Apparatus Responding to Accident

Two early morning accidents in the area involving a Jackson fire truck, an 18-wheeler and an SUV. 

One man died in the first crash. The Hinds County Coroner believes it was 37-year-old Anthony Boone, but his body was burned beyond recognition. Dental records or DNA will have to be used to make a positive I.D. The situation got worse when an 18-wheeler hauling chicken parts slammed into one of the fire trucks that was responding to the first accident.

Officials from the Department of Environmental Quality say 100 to 150 gallons of diesel spilled from the semi. One person from the 18 wheeler was transported to a local hospital and their condition is not known.

No firefighters injured in the wreck.
