The Georgia State Patrol reported  Cameron David Corbett of Homerville was killed when his pickup truck collided with Scruggs Concrete a semi-truck on Highway 41.

Reports state the driver of the semi, William Foskey, 50, was attempting to make a U-turn after missing a road.  Corbett’s truck collided with the semi, running underneath the trailer, shearing off the pickup truck’s body.

GSP Investigator William Cope told WALB in a report that charges are pending against the semi truck driver.

“If there’s any charges, it’ll be done at the end of the SCRT investigation,” Cope told WALB. “The fog was patchy, thick in a lot of areas, and it did play a factor in this crash.”

Foskey was detained by officials and taken away for questioning.
