Vicksburg police officers block Court Street at its intersection with Wood Street Wednesday afternoon following a two-vehicle wreck that sent six people to the hospital. Investigating officer Jonathan Tillman said a Cadillac Escalade driven by Armitress Alford, 41, 1641 W. 14th St., Riviera Beach, Fla., rounded the corner from Court to Wood and turned too sharply before the SUV flipped onto its side as it approached a City of Vicksburg truck driven by James Butler, 48, 160 Curry Road. Alford and her passenger, Lynette Henderson, 36, 13545 Woodmont St., Detroit, and Butler and his three passengers, Leron Beeman, 31, 2707 Oak St.; Cedric Coleman, 31, 7093 U.S. 61 South; and Courtney Sanders, 26, 388 Moore Pit Road, were all taken to River Region Medical Center. Hospital spokesman Allen Karel said this morning they were all treated and released.
