One person was treated and released from Citizens Medical Center after a one-car wreck on U.S. Highway 59 early Sunday morning.
Miranda Marie Reeves, 22, of Inez, was traveling east on U.S. 59 near Hill Road in a 2005 green Ford Taurus when she ran off the shoulder of the road, Department of Public Safety Trooper Gerald Bryant said.
Reeves then struck a concrete culvert and went airborne. He said the car rolled at least two times and caught fire.
"It landed on the roof," Bryant said.
Reeves was wearing her seatbelt and suffered cuts and bruises.
Trooper Ronald Johnson is still investigating the cause of the crash.
