An elderly man sustained fatal injuries after his pickup truck crashed into a trash truck in Aiken, South Carolina. On Friday morning, just before 8 am, the 72-year-old man was traveling on Old Barnwell Road when he rear-ended a trash truck. Two sanitation workers sustained personal injuries, and were transported to the University Hospital in Augusta, Georgia while the man driving the pickup truck succumbed to his fatal injuries at the scene of the truck accident.
Many truck accidents result in catastrophic injuries for most parties involved. The impact of a smaller vehicle slamming into a larger one could lead to personal injuries or even fatalities for victims occupying the vehicles engaged in the accident. If victims survive the crash, they may suffer from mental distress, debilitating pain, and be unable to earn a living.
