This week an 18-wheeler and a pickup truck were in an auto accident on Dongola Rd near Conway, SC.
The tractor trailer was backing into a private drive across the highway when the pickup truck ran into the side of it. The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured but the driver and passenger of the pickup were transported to a local hospital.
Chris Blair, 28, originally from Texas, was the passenger in the pickup and died from his blunt force injuries. The driver of the pickup was seriously injured but the extent of injuries has not been released.
While not injured, the driver of the tractor trailer was cited for not yielding the right of way.
