GEORGE COUNTY -- The Mississippi Highway Patrol is investigating a rear-end collision on Mississippi 63 that killed the driver of a farm tractor and injured the driver of a sport utility vehicle.

The collision four miles south of Lucedale was reported about 2:30 p.m. Thursday, MHP Cpl. Jason Gazzo said.

The name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of family.

A John Deer tractor was southbound and a Ford Escape was travelling behind it when the SUV struck the back of the tractor, Gazzo said.

"The tractor had a 'slow moving vehicle' sign properly visible, but I think the woman driving the SUV misjudged the distance and struck the tractor, ejecting its driver," Gazzo said.

The tractor driver died at the scene.

The other driver was taken by a LifeFlight helicopter to the University of South Alabama Medical Center. She appeared to have moderate injuries and was in shock, Gazzo said.

No charges have been filed. The collision is under investigation, "but it doesn't appear that alcohol was a factor," Gazzo said.

SunHerald.com updates this story as soon as the deceased's name is released.

I learned to send pics from my digital camera to my computer. Cameras have certainly come a long ways. I wish the best for both families.
