Whenever the police get a call about a tractor trailer accident, they know to expect the worst. It can be even worse when they get to the scene and learn that there were not one but two tractor trailers involved, as well as two other vehicles, as was the case with a crash in Dublin, Georgia, on March 14.
When they arrived at the scene, the police saw that there were a total of four cars involved. The crash happened at Georgia Interstate-15 in Dublin.
One of the victims, Anthony “Jaroy” Stuckey, was the new principal at Dublin High School. In the car with him were his wife and son. In the passenger seat was Stuckey’s wife, Elisa who was pregnant with the couple’s second child. She was scheduled to have the baby in May.
Apparently, Stuckey was traveling toward the interstate on Interstate-15 at the same time as a couple of other vehicles. Per the police report and witnesses, one of the tractor trailers slammed into the back of another passenger vehicle. This second tractor trailer then smashed into another passenger car. It was this car who slammed into Stuckey’s car.
By the time the cops and Bullock County rescue teams arrived, all four of the vehicles were in shambles on the side of the intersection. The man driving the tractor trailer was fine. He didn’t even have to go to the hospital. The passengers in the other vehicles were taken to the local hospital with serious injuries.
Sadly, Principal Stucky and his entire family did not survive the crash in Dublin. They were pronounced dead at the scene. There has not been any indication if the other drivers will be charged with any crimes. However, the Stuckey family will certainly have a claim for wrongful death.
