BLACKSHEAR — An Alma man was killed Monday when his Pepsi delivery truck crashed on U.S. 84 at its intersection with Owens Road, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Jordy Williams, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 3:20 p.m. accident, said Amanda Dixon, GSP Waycross post secretary.
Driving a medium-heavy duty International 4000 series delivery truck, Williams was westbound in the outside lane on Highway 84 at the 10 mile marker in Pierce County when the truck veered off the roadway and onto the shoulder of the highway, said Dixon.
No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured, she said.
Williams was ejected from the truck, Dixon said, and was trapped under the cab of the truck.
Trooper Jeffrey Robinson investigated the 3:20 p.m. accident.
The truck truck ran off the road along the shoulder for 87 feet, then struck a culvert, Dixon said, and vaulted over the culvert for 66 feet, landing on the shoulder where the front tires of the truck left a trench about 20 feet long.
The truck then continued for another 13 feet and the front axle became dislodged from the truck. Dixon said the rig then rolled onto the driver’s side and slid 24 feet facing north.
