A 1998 MACK TRUCK BEING DRIVEN BY A 60-YEAR-OLD MALE DRIVER WAS TRAVELING EASTBOUND ON SR-50, EAST OF RICHLOAM CLAY SINK ROAD, WAS NEGOTIATING A LEFT TURN IN THE ROADWAY. SEVERAL VEHICLES WERE TRAVELING WESTBOUND ON SR-50, AND WHILE TRAVERSING THE SAME CURVE AN UNKNOWN SUV WAS PASSING SEVERAL VEHICLES ILLEGALLY.
