According to officials, Dep. Matt Mullinax with the sheriff’s department avoided serious injury at the scene of an 18-wheeler accident. Capt. Billy Murray said the rig was hooked to a wrecker when it came loose and rolled backwards. Mullinax’s leg was caught between the tractor-trailer and a firetruck.
Authorities had originally responded to the scene of a minor accident involving the tractor-trailer and a minor fuel spill. No other injuries were reported in the incident.
