Logging truck crashes into house

November 13, 2002

Colquitt Co. - An Adel man was killed Wednesday afternoon when his logging truck crashed into a house.  He veered off Adel Highway, went up a hill, through a chainlink fence and then travelled more than 300 feet before crashing into the front porch of an 80-year old farmhouse.

No one was in the home.

Fellow loggers say the man in his late 50s had just come from Beadles Timber company in Moultrie and was doing fine. They say he does have a history of heart condition.

The State Patrol is waiting on autopsy results to determine what caused his death.
