A man is dead in Laurel after a vehicle accident Saturday morning, at the intersection of Highway 84 East at Eastview Drive.
The man who died, had just left Auto World, where he dropped his wife off.
He then attempted to cross the highway to get to Dollar General, when a Ford F350, traveling west, struck his car, severely damaging the driver’s side door.
The Rustin, Sandersville, Glade and Powers volunteer fire departments all responded to the scene, in order to extricate the trapped victim and give medical aide.
Officials say there was “one occupant in each vehicle and the driver of the F350 sustained moderate injuries.”
Jones County Sheriff’s Department and MHP also responded.
The driver of the truck was transported by ambulance to the emergency room.
Both westbound lanes of Highway 84 East were completely shut down for over an hour.
