An unidentified man who was walking on Ovett-Moselle Road, near Highway 29, suffered what were described as serious injuries when he was struck by an SUV just before 5 p.m., Jones County Sheriff’s Department officials confirmed. 

The victim was transported to South Central Regional Medical Center for treatment after first-responders tended to him at the scene.

Look for more information from the Leader-Call as it becomes available.
