Man pinned beneath tractor trailer

TROUP COUNTY, GA (WXTX) – A Columbus man has died after being crushed by a tractor-trailer in Troup County.

Sheriff Deputies say 30 year old Ronnie Bullard was working on the brakes of the back axle of the truck when two jacks, which were resting on gravel and lending support to the truck, gave way and trapped him.

Firefighters removed Bullard from under the truck and performed CPR but it was too late.

The coroner pronounced him dead on the scene.
