A Greenville, S.C., man was killed in a Thursday morning wreck in Appling.
Columbia County Deputy Coroner Harriett Garrison said Garud S. Acharya, 65, died from blunt force trauma to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.
At about 10:30 a.m. Acharya was stopped in his Toyota Camry on Bennett Road at Ray Owens Road. He works for ADT and was in the area for his job, Garrison said.
While attempting a left turn on Ray Owens Road, Acharya pulled into the path of a northbound dump truck, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
