According to WIS, 58-year-old Harold Clinkscales was pulling a hay rake while riding his John Deere tractor, when a 58-year-old pickup driver hit and killed him. Anderson County Coroner stated that Clinkscales was stopped in a driveway off Smith McGee road right outside the town of Starr.
The accident occurred after a pickup driver slowed down to see if Clinkscale was going to pull out of the driveway. Another pickup truck, driven by Eddie Arnold, sideswiped the first truck and left the roadway, crashing into Clinkscales. Clinkscales died at the scene and Arnold was airlifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital. The other pickup driver was uninjured.
The accident remains under investigation. It is unknown if any charges have been filed in connection to the accident.
Everyday hundreds of people around the country receive injuries or dies as result of car accidents. As a society, we’ve come to learn “accidents happen”. Even though “accidents happen”, when an innocent driver or passenger is injured or killed because of another driver’s negligence, they deserve compensation for their injuries.
Injuries resulting from car accidents can be life altering leaving some accident victims requiring lifelong care from a spouse or family member. These injuries can leave both the victim and their family at a loss physically, emotionally and financially. Lifelong care can leave victims and families with expensive medical bills that seem to never stop piling up. Many times family members of accident victims must quit their jobs to take care of the victim leaving them with expensive medical bills and no income.
