A Brackley Beach woman has given a chilling account of her husband's horrific death Tuesday in South Carolina.
Betty Begg sent a message through a friend to The Guardian detailing the accident that claimed the life of her 77-year-old husband Elwood Begg.
She wrote that Elwood was crossing the road on foot when a truck traveling at high speeds hit him. The impact sent the man in the air and crashing hard on the road, causing extensive internal bleeding.
American media reported that Orangeburg County chief coroner Sean D. Fogle attributed the death to blunt force trauma resulting from being struck by a motor vehicle.
