The driver of a tractor-trailer was pronounced dead at the scene of a Tuesday afternoon crash at the intersection of Riner Road and Childress Road on Route 8.
First responders arrived on the scene shortly after 3 p.m. and located a passenger car that had been struck by the tractor-trailer. The impact sent the 18-wheeler off the roadway and into a house.
The occupant of the passenger car and an occupant of the house were transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday identified the driver of the tractor-trailer rig as Ronald Stewart Bolt, 55, of Willis.
Route 8 was reopened Tuesday evening at approximately 8:20.
