Man Killed in Brunswick, GA, Truck Accident while Evading Arrest

Brunswick, GA -- January 25, 2017, a man was killed after he allegedly attempted to evade arrest and was hit by an 18-wheeler on I-95.

Glynn County authorities were called out to an accident scene at around 10:00 p.m. that occurred at the I-95 and US 17 interchange.

According to their reports, a man who was driving a truck, possibly stolen, was driving the wrong direction in the southbound lanes of travel. As a result, that vehicle and an SUV crashed head-on with each other. Reports say the occupants of the SUV were not injured in the crash.

Following this, police came to the scene and said that the driver of the wrong-way truck was uncooperative with officers. They eventually placed him in handcuffs and gave him to EMTs for examination.

Shortly after this, the man somehow escaped his restraints and attempted to flee authorities. He crossed over onto the northbound lanes of the interstate, where he entered the path of an oncoming 18-wheeler. The truck could not stop in time, and it struck the man in the roadway.

The man suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene of the accident. At this time, authorities have not reported his identity.

It's unclear if any other factors contributed to the accident. Additional details are pending further investigation.
