Afternoon Accident Ties Up Traffic In Jackson

Two drivers escaped serious injury in a collision that tied traffic up for over an hour yesterday afternoon in front of Grocery Outlet on Highway 49.  According to reports, just before 3 o’clock, a sedan was pulling forward in traffic on the inside lane when an SUV turned from the westbound lane to enter the Grocery Outlet parking lot.  The sedan could not stop in time and struck the SUV, damaging both vehicles.  Both southbound lanes of Highway 49 were blocked and traffic was detoured through Main Street until about 4:30, while crews cleared the vehicles from the roadway.
