Bradley and the truck both came to a rest in the roadway. After the initial crash, Bradley was struck by a vehicle that drove through the crash scene– this vehicle did not stop.

A Dodge Truck, who was also traveling north on I-75, struck the Toyota truck that was still in the road, which resulted in the driver– Mark Greenwell from Tennessee– receiving minor injuries, which were treated at Perry Hospital.
