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.
