Local couple killed in Mississippi accident

A Franklinton-area husband and wife were killed last week on Interstate 20 in Mississippi when an 18-wheeler ran into their vehicle. Triston McCain Scott, 35, and Calvin Lee Scott, 40, leave behind five children. Triston was a Franklinton High graduate, while Calvin was originally from Georgia. They were driving to Georgia to visit with Calvin’s seriously ill father when the accident occurred. The tragedy got worse when Calvin’s father passed away only two days after the accident claimed his son and daiughter in law. According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the accident occurred on Interstate 20 near Meridan at 11:45 p.m. Thursday night, December 5. The investigation into the accident was continuing at press time Monday.
