The pickup truck was reportedly slowing in preparation to make a right turn into a parking lot. A southbound 18-wheeler towing a trailer reportedly changed lanes from the left-hand southbound lane to the right-hand lane behind the pickup truck. Officials indicate that, for unknown reasons, the 18-wheeler did not control its speed, resulting in a collision with the back-end of the pickup truck. The collision caused the pickup to veer off of the west side of the roadway and into a drainage ditch where it rolled onto its left side before coming to a stop upright.

Both Corine and William Pledger incurred suspected severe injuries as a result of the accident; they were each transported to a local medical facility by EMS in order to receive treatment. No other injuries have been reported.

Additional details pertaining to this incident are not available at this point in time. The investigation is currently ongoing.
