A civilian came to the aid of a Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper Friday night, when the officer's 2018 Charger crashed on U.S. 61 in Wilkinson County.
Mississippi Highway Patrol State Trooper Matt Rymer was responding to a call at the time of the single vehicle crash, Corporal Craig James, Mississippi Highway Patrol public affairs officer told the Natchez Democrat.
Rymer’s Charger left the roadway and collided with a culvert before flipping over and catching fire. A witness to the crash broke the vehicle’s side window and helped Rymer out of his vehicle.
The trooper suffered minor injuries in the crash.
