On Wednesday, March 12, at 5:20 p.m., Greenwood County Sheriff’s Deputies and Greenwood County EMS responded to a roll over accident at the intersection of EE25 and DD50 Road, north of Virgil.

Benjamin Roy Davis, 41, of Leon, was driving a JF Electric truck for his employer when he left the road rolling the vehicle onto it’s roof, coming to rest in the ditch.

According to reports from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, Davis was ejected from the driver’s window and was not wearing a seatbelt at the time. The driver’s foreman later told The Eureka Herald that the driver told him he was wearing a seatbelt and had crawled out of the window after the vehicle stopped rolling. Davis was transported to the hospital and later released.

The accident remains under investigation.
