A 45-year-old man fell to his death Monday night after he
tried to hitch a ride on the side of an 18-wheeler, according to The Associated Press.
Emmett Shane Clay died after he lost his grip and was hit by
the truck as it negotiated a curve along Interstate 285 in Greenville County,
SC, according to The AP.
Authorities said Clay had asked the trucker for a ride, but
the driver told him he couldn't give rides to passengers. The driver didn't
know Clay was on the truck when the accident occurred, The AP reported.
