BLACKSHEAR — A Waycross man was injured Monday when a farm tractor struck the side of his truck on Midway Church Road, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Daniel Davis, 25, was taken by ambulance to Waycross for treatment of injuries he suffered in the 2:25 p.m. accident, said Steve Drury, GSP Brunswick post secretary.
Driving a 2008 Ford Superduty pickup truck, Davis was southbound on Midway Church Road near Ashley Street.
A John Deere Combine driven by Archie Blythe, 20, of Blackshear, was northbound on Midway Church Road, said Drury. The tractor veered off the east shoulder and the left axle failed, causing it to re-enter Midway Church Road and cross the center line where it hit the left side of the Davis truck.
Blythe was not injured. Drury said he was issued a warning for failure to maintain a lane.
Davis was cited for not wearing a seatbelt, Drury said.
Trooper Dustin Stone was in charge of the accident investigation.
