One person was airlifted to a hospital Tuesday after being injured in a two-vehicle accident on Henleyfield McNeill Road.

The Pearl River County Sheriff’s Department received a call at 12:29 p.m. that day concerning the accident, which occurred about a quarter mile east of Harris Road, Chief Deputy Shane Tucker said.

Tucker said a red Dodge Ram pickup truck, driven by a 16- year-old, along with a juvenile passenger, was heading westbound on Henleyfield McNeill Road when the driver attempted to make a left turn into a dirt lot. At that time, a Ford F-150 driven by Eugene Bourgeis, 68, of Ada Mark Rd., Sandy Hook, Miss., collided with the Dodge, Tucker said.
