Major Car Accident on I-85 in South Carolina Kills Man, Seriously Injures Another Driver | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Six cars were involved in a tragic chain reaction wreck which resulted in one man dead and another person suffering neck and back injuries, according to News Channel 7.

The accident occurred on Interstate 85 (I-85) in Anderson County, South Carolina (SC). Eric Wayne Dozier was the individual killed in this terrible accident. Mr. Dozier was driving a pickup truck when he hit the median but wound up back on I-85 when a FedEx 18-wheeler smashed into his truck.

My deepest condolences go out to Mr. Dozier’s friends and family. He was just 36 years old.

Another driver involved in the accident suffered serious neck and back injuries and is being treated at a Greenville, South Carolina (SC) hospital.
