Just around 8:45 PM last night (December 4, 2020), we were notified of a vehicle accident on Nelson Rd. We arrived on the scene and found a sedan completely wrapped around a power pole. Once we approached the vehicle, it was realized that there were no occupants inside. We as well as Pearl River Police Department began to search the area to see if anyone may be injured nearby. We were unable to locate anyone after an extensive search with flashlights and our thermal imaging camera. Cleco was requested to the scene due to the extensive damage to the power pole and power being knocked out to some homes in the area. We did not remain on the scene but eventually, the vehicle was removed via a wrecker service.
Circumstances that caused the vehicle to crash and the whereabouts of the driver are something we're not aware of at this time.
