UPDATE: Nicholas Turnow Killed in Log Truck Accident in McDuffie County, Georgia

MCDUFFIE COUNTY, GA — A two-vehicle collision involving a log truck left one driver dead in McDuffie County, Georgia on Monday, June 23rd, 2014, according to the news release from The Augusta Chronicle.

Police think that 21-year-old Nicholas Turnow was killed when the vehicle he was driving and a log truck collided while driving through the intersection of Wrens Highway and Happy Valley Road around 5:00 in the afternoon Monday.

Scene of the Accident



Nicholas Turnow was killed in the accident, although it is not clear if they died instantly in the crash, or if they were taken by EMS personnel to a nearby hospital where they succumbed to their injuries a short time later.

The investigation is being handled by the Georgia State Police at this time, who hope to release the findings of their evaluation in the coming days.


Judging from what I see in the news summary, the fault in this particular accident is probably going to come down to whichever one of the vehicles involved failed to yield to the right-of-way. If the log truck driver did not have his eyes on the road and ran the light or stop sign, the logging company would more than likely be liable for this accident, unless there is some glaring omission of details in the news report.

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.
