MERIDIAN - One man is dead and four other people are in the hospital after a car accident in Meridian Friday evening.

According to Meridian Police, around 6:45 p.m., Hope Edwardson, 20, was driving a Pontiac Grand Am westbound on HWY 22 when she failed to yield the right of way to a black Dodge pick-up truck.

Trey Williams, who was driving that truck, slammed into the passenger side of the car.

The accident killed one man in the car and injured the four other people in the vehicle including two babies.

The Meridian Volunteer Fire Dept. and Clifton Volunteer Fire Dept. responded to the scene and used the jaws of life to free a 2-month old child from the wreckage. That infant was flown in a helicopter to Cook's Childrens Hospital in Ft. Worth in critical condition.

Brandon Anderson, 20, also was flown to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Anderson was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at Harris Methodist Hospital.

Edwardson, the mother of the 2-month-old, and another baby were transported to Hillcrest Baptist Medical center and treated for injuries.

Williams was not injured during the accident.

The accident shut the road down for roughly 1.5 hours while the wreckage was picked up.
