Several residents and first responders came to help victims of a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 10 on Saturday afternoon, including a retired Los Angeles firefighter.
Rick Camarena, who now lives in Gulfport, said he stopped because he knew his training would allow him to help.
“I saw five kids ejected,” he said of the crash. “I know trauma criteria; I helped them.”
D’Iberville Deputy Chief Clay Jones said the dark-gray Lincoln SUV was on the exit ramp to Interstate 110 north when it left the road and flipped several times, coming to rest near the D’Iberville Boulevard overpass. The SUV was not near the new “diverging-diamond” interchange, as previously reported. Police are still investigating the cause of the wreck.

Six people were in the vehicle, an adult driver and five children. All were taken to area hospitals, Jones said. One child taken to the hospital still strapped into a child-restraint seat.
D’Iberville firefighter Casey Lessard lay on the ground next to one young crash victim, holding a cellphone so the child could watch the animated film “Happy Feet.”
