One man dead after wreck

CENTREVILLE — A Bude man is dead after a Friday afternoon wreck on Mississippi 33 in Centreville.

Rase H. McGhee, 33, of 288 Beech St., Bude, was killed when the log truck he was driving crossed Mississippi 33 and was struck by another 18-wheeler.

McGhee was driving an unloaded 2000 Mac log truck in the north-bound lane behind two passenger vehicles, Mississippi Highway Patrol Sgt. Rusty Boyd said.

The first vehicle slowed to turn into Richland Equipment Company and the second passenger vehicle slowed as well, Boyd said.

Boyd said McGhee slammed on his brakes, causing the brakes on the log truck to lock up.

When the brakes locked up, the trailer of the rig jack-knifed and crossed into the south-bound lanes of Mississippi 33.

Boyd said the 1999 Freightliner driven by Adam S. Alexander, 38, 6881 Mississippi 11, Lumberton, was traveling in the south-bound lane when it collided with the right front of McGhee’s truck.

McGhee was pronounced dead at Field Memorial Hospital in Centreville.

“They attempted to fly him out of there to Jackson, but they could never get him stable,” Boyd said.

Alexander received moderate injuries and was treated and released at Field Memorial.

Alexander’s truck was carrying a load of chipped wood that spilled during the collision.

“It was a mess down there (Friday) and still was today,” Boyd said. “They cleaned up (Friday) evening to get the lanes opened back up and went back down there today to work some more.”
