Perkinston woman dies after 3-vehicle crash

WIGGINS, Miss. —  

A 55-year-old Perkinston woman has died of her injuries from a three-vehicle collision on U.S. 49 in the McHenry community south of Wiggins.

Trooper Roy Jacobsen of the Mississippi Highway Patrol tells The Sun Herald Darlene K. Kreis was one of the drivers in a Monday night collision. Jacobsen says Kreis died early Tuesday.

He says Kreis was one of two motorists trying to enter the divided highway when her carcollided with a southbound car driven by 21-year-old Olivia Jordan Beck, of Purvis.

Their vehicles then collided with a pickup driven by 55-year-old Charles O'Neal, of Perkinston.

Stone County Coroner Wayne Flurry said Kreis was not restrained and was ejected from her car. She was taken to the Stone County Hospital, but could not be resuscitated.
