On April 19 at 11:33a, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single-vehicle crash on State Road 311 in Elizabeth near Glass Sand Road.

Witnesses said that a dark blue van was traveling East toward Highway 111 when it sideswiped a guardrail for an unknown reason. 

The van then traveled left of center, over-corrected, and rolled multiple times off the roadway. 

The female driver was ejected from the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

A juvenile passenger was transported by ambulance to Norton Children’s Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and is in stable condition. 

Harrison County Deputies and the Harrison County Coroner have notified the driver’s immediate family but her identification is being withheld until all family has been properly notified. 

The crash is still under investigation.
