Andrew Douglas McLain, 23, of Sylacauga was treated and released from Coosa Valley Medical Center after being taken from the scene by Sylacauga Ambulance, a family member said.
McLain was sitting at a red light on Gene Stewart Boulevard at the intersection of U.S. 280 at about 10 a.m. when one of the 18-wheelers was knocked airborne into his 2011 Ford F-150 pickup, which was pushed backwards into a 1997 Toyota 4Runner driven by Bill Jacob Simpson, 50, of Childersburg.
The trouble apparently began when an 18-wheeler belonging to New South Express of Lincoln was taking a left from 280 onto Gene Stewart Boulevard near Home Depot. That truck, driven by Allen Ray Carroll, 45, of Hokes Bluff, was hit on the side near the back by an 18-wheeler belonging to Blair Block of Childersburg, driven by John Wesley Bice, 57, of Sylacauga.
According to a Sylacauga police report, the trailer of Carroll’s truck went into the air and landed on McLain’s pickup.
