Authorities believe a medical condition caused a fatal tractor-trailer accident Saturday in Monroe County.
Willie Youman, 46, of Claxton, was driving a tractor-trailer south on Interstate 75 when the truck left the roadway and struck an embankment, according to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office release. No other vehicles were involved and Youman was pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident happened at about 12:30 p.m. near mile marker 185. Youman was coming back from Atlanta after dropping off a load of poultry he had hauled from Claxton.
