Yesterday, a 2014 Nissan pulled out in front of a tracter-trailer on SC Highway 72 in Laurens County, South Carolina.

The tracter-trailer hit the driver's side of the vehicle and the driver, James Brian Ashley, was pronounced dead on the scene. Ashley was trapped in the vehicle and the jaws of life were used to remove him from the car.

Two passengers were also in the car and were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
