A Waycross man was injured Friday when a tractor trailer made a wide turn at the intersection of McDonald Street and the South Georgia Parkway and struck a vehicle in the intersection, said Waycross Police Capt. Benji Hersey.
Tony Denton, 51, was taken by Ware County Emergency Medical Service ambulance to Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross for treatment of his injuries, said Hersey.
Driving a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo, Denton was southbound on McDonald Street, as he entered the intersection. Carlos Moreira, 41, of Miami, Fla., driving a 1991 Peterbilt, was northbound on McDonald Street and began making a right turn at the intersection. Hersey said the semi struck the Denton vehicle.
Officer Ernest Benton investigated the 1:53 p.m. accident.
