According to court records, on March 3, 2004, at 1 p.m. Robert Reynolds was driving a fully loaded dump truck north on Gautier-Vancleave Road, just before the Interstate 10 overpass. Reynolds worked for Mallette Brother’s Construction in Vancleave at the time. A 74-foot long, 22-wheel truck and trailer pulled across both northbound lanes and caused a collision, court records reflect.
Mr. Reynolds was rescued by Gautier Fire Department paramedics using the Jaws of Life,” Taylor said. “In and out of consciousness, he was transported to Ocean Springs Hospital for initial treatment of many serious and painful injuries.
