Jackie Davis Killed After Truck Strikes His Motorized Wheelchair at the Intersection of Old Mobile Highway and Market Street in Pascagoula, Mississippi


Pascagoula, Miss. — A man died after a truck struck his motorized wheelchair at the intersection of Old Mobile Highway and Market Street. The incident happened on Wednesday.

According to authorities, a truck used for carrying large limbs and debris was turning right onto Market Street, heading north, when Jackie Davis, traveling south on Market Street in the northbound lanes in his motorized wheelchair, was struck by the truck, dragging the wheelchair under it.

Davis died after arriving at the hospital.

A motorized wheelchair is no match for a large truck. How could this happen? Mr. Davis’ surviving family deserves answers. They have a right to know exactly why this happened. A thorough investigation by trained professionals can help determine what factors led to Mr. Davis losing his life.

Each year, thousands of pedestrians fall victim to vehicular accidents. Let’s do more to keep our most vulnerable safe on the roadways.
