Tragic, Fatal Rear-End Dump Truck Accident in Effingham County, Georgia

August 22, 2022

EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GEORGIA - A news report published on states that the Georgia Department of Public Safety reported a severe motor vehicle accident in Effingham County.*

The Georgia Department of Public Safety issued a media statement saying that a motorist was tragically killed in a Monday morning car accident in Effingham County. The accident occurred at around 6:30 AM.

The news report states that a trooper was dispatched to a two-car accident with at least one confirmed fatality on Georgia 21 north. The crash occurred just past the intersection of Georgia 21 and Patriot Park. The motor vehicle accident investigation so far has discovered that a Honda Element was heading northbound on Georgia 21. At the moment, a dump truck was traveling in front of the Honda. As the dump truck began to slow down and make a left turn into a work zone, the Honda rear-ended the dump truck. 

The driver, a 69-year-old man from Rincon, suffered fatal accident-related injuries, and he was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The victim was allegedly not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the rear-end collision. The driver of the other vehicle was not hurt. According to Effingham County Coroner David Exley, he responded to the accident scene and performed a blood test on the victim. Georgia 21 North was shut down for around two hours during the accident investigation. The Georgia State Patrol worked the car accident scene.
