SPRINGFIELD, Ga. (WSAV) — An incident report offers new details on a severe crash that claimed a South Carolina man’s life in Springfield last week.
According to the report provided by the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, the collision occurred as a man was unloading vehicles in front of the Southern Motors Chrysler dealer on Highway 21.
Officials said Stephon Glasgow, of Florence, South Carolina, was climbing onto the car hauler and into a truck when he was struck.
Vernon Hendrix was reportedly driving a box truck south on the highway when he traveled up the car hauler and hit the vehicle Glasgow was getting into.
The box truck then rolled off of the trailer onto its roof, injuring Glasgow.
