Chain reaction wreck sends man to hospital

March 14, 2006

Lee County -- A chain reaction crash sent a pickup truck careening into a building in South Lee County Tuesday morning. 

The wreck, on U.S. 19 South near Kinchafoonee Creek Road, happened when Billy Cox pulled his pickup truck into the path of a Jeep, headed south on 19.

Cox's truck then careened across a ditch, crashed through a Darsey Oil Company sign, hit a parked Albany Elevator truck and then slammed into their building.

Witnesses say Cox looked unconcious coming toward the building. "He wasn't on the gas or on the brake, just coasting on through.  He hit the truck hard and just bounced off and hit the building," said Adam Thomas.

Billy Cox was taken to a local hospital, where he is in fair condition.

Amber Hall, the driver of the Jeep, complained of pain after her airbag deployed. No one else was injured.

Cox is charged with failure to yield.
