Bizarre crash snarls four-lane traffic

A bizarre accident snarled traffic on Highway 41/341 near Hot Shot Friday morning. A beat-up Chevy S-10 pickup was towing an equally ragged Chevy Blazer with a tow rope. The tandem was northbound on the four-lane when the towed car began to veer into the left lane where it ran up under a tractor-trailer, police at the scene speculated. Both vehicles then veered across the median and ended up facing north in the southbound lane. Miraculously, there were no serious injuries but traffic was impacted for about an hour while the mess was cleared. Craig Davis, who was familiar with those involved, said the tow strap was certified. He said the Blazer was driven by his father-in-law, Raymond Eubanks of Thomaston. The S-10 was driven by Eubanks’ father, Ronnie Eubanks, also of Thomaston. Tyler Phillips, Raymond Eubanks’ stepson, was also in the S-10. He said the truck with the Blazer in tow was leaving Hot Shot and crossing the northbound land to go southbound when the tractor-trailer clipped the towed vehicle, dragging it into the norhtbound traffic. Davis said no charges were filed.
