  • Everlasting pain

    If not for the decorative Clemson license plate, you likely would not have recognized Monty Blackmon’s blue truck.

    The Chevrolet pickup was left crushed so badly that the roof no longer existed. All of the glass was shattered and the exterior was altered in a way that pieces of the engine were the most visible items.

    Blackmon was inside the vehicle when all of this impact occurred.

    This was back in December 2003, just after the Lancaster County man was involved in a three-vehicle collision that took his life.

    A winter storm ices all the roads. Flash flooding later washes out those same thoroughfares and a hurricane poses safety threads to everyone within a certain radius.
