Pickup sticks

Big Leaf Trucking employee Lionell Hoggatt of Natchez sits among the 40-odd logs that fell from his truck and onto Mississippi 3 near Redwood Wednesday about 9:10 a.m. State Trooper Jake Coffie said Hoggatt, headed up the ramp from U.S. 61 to Mississippi 3, failed to negotiate a banked curve that toppled the top-heavy trailer. The Big Leaf company was called to remove the logs from the north and south lanes. (The Vicksburg Post/C. TODD SHERMAN)
