Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 10-Oct-2012

An 18 wheeler truck accident in Mustang Ridge left the driver of a pickup truck dead on Tuesday night, after the gas tanker collided with the smaller truck, pinning the pickup beneath the big rig, officials reported.

The driver of the pickup truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the 18 wheeler accident on Hwy 21 in Mustang Ridge. The collision occurred at approximately 11:30 p.m. on October 10th, police said. Hwy 21 was not reopened until Wednesday morning.

Although police are still investigating the gas tanker truck accident, reports noted that the driver of the 18 wheeler was not injured in the collision.

Clean up was extensive as emergency crew members were careful to avoid creating any sparks, which could have ignited the wreckage into an inferno of flames.

The name of the man who was killed in the crash has not yet been released, pending notification of next of kin and family.
