Tavares Moseby, 32, of Parkdale, Ark., was returning to his lane after passing a car when his vehicle continued to veer right and headed off the road.
According to Trooper Charles Lamb with Mississippi Highway Patrol Troop D, Moseby traveled a long distance after veering off the highway and never hit the brakes before the right front bumper of his vehicle collided with a tree.
The collision overturned his vehicle and landed on the passenger side.
Bolivar County Volunteer Fire Battalion 6 was the first on the scene and called for Battalion 1 to assist.
At 2:12 p.m., from chatter on the scanner radio Air One asked firefighters and highway patrol to block the highway in order for them to land. By this time Moseby had been extracted form the vechicle.
Lamb said there was no indication of drugs or alcohol and the cause of the wreck has yet to be determined.
Moseby was airlifted around 2:30 p.m. by Pafford Air One Delta and was taken to the UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock.
Lamb said Moseby was badly hurt in the accident but his injuries are not life threatening.
