An airplane pilot wrecked not his plane, but an airport car in Anderson, South Carolina last week in an accident involving a tractor-trailer. Not an airline pilot, he apparently was flying a private jet.
The car belonged to the Anderson County Regional Airport and existed for the use of individuals, like this airplane pilot, who fly into the airport. The South Carolina Highway Patrol has not provided much information about the accident.
The collision happened on S.C. 28 Bypass near the Sonic Drive-In in Anderson. The pilot hit the rear of a tractor-trailer truck, which had stopped due to a fender-bender in front of it. There is no indication that the truck driver was injured in the accident. Neither were the pilot nor his two children, who were sitting in the back seat. The pilot’s wife, sitting in the passenger seat, required an X-ray to disprove injury.
The wreck will not deprive the airport of a car. A second car will be available, and insurance will replace the wrecked auto soon.
