Timothy Antonio McNeil Killed in Truck Accident in Cherokee County, SC

Cherokee County, SC — April 27, 2023, Timothy Antonio McNeil was killed following a semi-truck accident at around 4:40 p.m. along Interstate 85.

South Carolina State Police officials said that the deadly crash happened along southbound lanes of the interstate in the Blacksburg area near the North Carolina state line. It appears traffic in the area was backed up due to a previous fatal crash which took the life of Leigh Ann Hamilton Marshall.

According to current information, 25-year-old Timothy McNeil was said to be in a box truck going southbound. Approaching the traffic, McNeil slowed the vehicle. After this, a southbound tractor-trailer somehow crashed into McNeil's truck, dragging it for "several hundred feet," according to reports. As a result of the collision, McNeil sustained fatal injuries. It appears one other person had apparently non-life-threatening injuries.

In reports, the county coroner was quoted saying that the tractor-trailer driver that hit McNeil's truck apparently dragged McNeil's truck "several hundred feet before the driver realized it was underneath." It's unclear if investigators are able to confirm this claim, and the details leading up to the crash, including the exact cause for the crash, are unavailable at this time.
