NA man dies in Highway 15 accident

A two-car collision that occurred on Highway 15 South Wednesday afternoon resulted in the death of a New Albany man.

Mississippi Highway Patrol Public Affairs Officer Ray Hall of Troop F in New Albany said that LeChristopher Gipson, 21, of New Albany was killed as a result of the accident, which happened at approximately 2:45 p.m., near Union County Road 94.
“Upon arriving, it appeared Gipson was traveling north in a 1990 Pontiac Bonneville,” Hall said.  “His vehicle apparently crossed over into oncoming traffic and collided head on into a 2001 Buick Le Sabre, driven by Linda Grubbs, 61, of New Albany.”
Hall said Gipson, who was wearing a seat belt, received fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
He also said that Grubbs and her two-year-old passenger were both transported to Baptist Hospital in New Albany with non life threatening injuries.
“Grubbs was wearing a seat belt and the toddler was properly restrained in a child restraint,” Hall said.
Ingomar Fire Department was also called to the scene.
The accident remains under investigation.
