NATCHEZ — Traffic was at a brief standstill after a three-vehicle accident on D’Evereux Drive Friday morning.

Natchez Police Lt. Justin Robinson said Geraldine Evans was traveling eastbound in a 2005 silver Toyota Avalon at approximately 7:40 a.m. when it partially rear-ended a 2005 white Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by Ernest Hall.

The Toyota Avalon then ricocheted off the pickup truck and finally rear-ended a school bus driven by Felicia B. Shannon. Robinson said no children were inside the school bus at the time of the collision.

Robinson said Evans complained of pain following the collision, but no serious injuries were reported, and Evans did not seek medical attention.

Robinson said traffic was halted for approximately 10 minutes while the vehicles were moved to the side of the highway.
