Semi crash closes SR 7 in Jennings County

The Jennings County Sheriff’s Department is reporting that a jack-knifed semi has closed State Road 7 just north of Scipio. Authorities say the crash took place just north of County Road 600 West (Grammar Road) and south of County Road 750 North.

As of 9:35 p.m., a wrecker is in route, said local dispatch. They add the closure could last for several hours due to the angle of the jack-knifed semi. Authorities say it is going to take a considerable amount of work to remove the vehicle and get the road reopened.
