‘Bike for Health’ Saturday at school
Holly Springs Mayor Andre’ DeBerry invites youth and adults to come “Bike and Hike for Health” Saturday, Aug. 7.
Mississippi ranks number one in the nation for childhood obesity. In January of this year, the mayor launched a walking campaign called “ALOAD” – At Least One Mile A Day” of walking by residents of Holly Springs.
As a follow-up to that program, he asks everyone to join him from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday on Maury Street at the primary school as “we take a giant step to improve the health of our community and especially our children.”
For more information, contact the mayor’s office at 252-4280.
One dies in collision on 78 near Byhalia
Barbara Ann Crumb, 46, of Olive Branch and formerly of Holly Springs, was killed in a collision with a pickup on U.S. 78 near Byhalia Sunday morning, according to coroner James Richard Anderson.
He pronounced Crumb dead on the scene after receiving a call around 8:25 a.m.
Crumb was driving a 2007 Saturn eastbound on 78 when her vehicle crossed the median and collided head on with a Dodge 2500 dually pulling a trailer, according to Anderson.
The male driver of the pickup was believed to have sustained minor injuries and was transported to Alliance HealthCare System for treatment, he said.
The driver of the pickup was in the inside lane of the westbound lanes of traffic, Anderson said. The pickup turned upon its side during the collision after the flatbed trailer it was pulling jackknifed, the coroner said. The truck driver was from out of state.
Neither vehicle was carrying passengers.
He said the driver of the pickup crawled out the passenger side window of his truck.
