He was driving westbound in a Chevrolet Silverado when he crossed the center line, traveling into eastbound traffic, the GSP said. The pickup truck then collided with a Mack Truck.
The dump truck’s driver, a 68-year-old man from Thomaston, told troopers that he braked and tried to steer left in hopes of avoiding the crash but was unsuccessful. He was also injured in the crash and was taken to Wellstar West Georgia Medical Hospital. His condition was not provided.
