UPDATE: Richard Moore Injured in Tractor-Trailer Accident in Barrow County, Georgia

BARROW COUNTY, GA — A flatbed tractor-trailer accident involving several other vehicles killed one man and sent a driver to the hospital in Barrow County, Georgia on Wednesday, June 4th, 2014, according to a news article from The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Investigators from the Georgia State Police have said that they believe Richard Moore was hurt when the Dodge 3500 pickup truck he was driving was struck from the rear by a flatbed tractor-trailer while driving on Highway 315 around 1:30 in the afternoon on Wednesday.

Scene of the Accident



Richard Moore was taken by EMS to nearby Athens Regional Medical Center for treatment. A passenger in the pickup truck was identified by police as Cody Brantley, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the flatbed tractor-trailer was identified in the report as 40-year-old Roger Bly, who currently faces homicide by vehicle and following too closely charges in connection with the fatal accident.


This is one of those accidents that may look like it has an open-and-shut fact pattern, when in reality, there is always a fight when we’re talking about a commercial freight company. These companies have dealt with accidents just like this one for decades on end, while their victims have only had experience with maybe one or two fender-benders in their lives. These companies are also fully aware they have far greater resources to use in a fight, because these companies know what they are doing. Leveling the playing field with equal experience can go a long, long way in dealing with these situations.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
