A Friday afternoon crash on Harper Road has left one area man dead.

Coroner Jay Jones said late Friday they were waiting to release the name of the deceased driver pending notification of his next of kin.

The driver of the Chevrolet pickup truck was attempting to pull out of SMC Recycling onto Harper Road going east around 3:30 p.m. Friday when his vehicle crossed into the path of a Ford truck and was struck in the driver’s side door. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the second vehicle was not injured.
