GSP investigates serious wreck on Hwy 280 near I-16 ramp

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating after a serious wreck involving a semi-truck and vehicle occurred on Monday night.

Investigators say a semi-truck got off of I-16 at the U.S. Highway 280 exit ramp while traveling east, and was attempting to make a left turn onto US 280, when a passenger vehicle traveling west on US 280 approached the same ramp.

The semi-truck failed to yield while turning left, causing the passenger vehicle to crash into the left side of the trailer, and become pinned underneath the trailer.

The driver of the passenger vehicle, 25-year-old Gerald Salter of Pembroke, received serious injuries from this incident, and was flown to Memorial for treatment.

No other injuries were reported.
