A Mississippi man is in critical condition following a one-vehicle wreck on US Hwy. 425 near Oak Ridge.

An 18-wheeler hauling corn was traveling southeast on 425 when for an unknown reason, the driver left the roadway, flipping the rig and coming to rest right side up. The driver, whose name has not been released, was extricated from the vehicle by Mer Rouge volunteer fire fighters, Bastrop fire fighters and Med Life Ambulance emergency workers. He was airlifted to a trauma facility. No other information was know at press time.
