An ambulance transported 53-year-old Matthew Henson to the Samaritan Hospital of Macon.

The truck drove west on Highway 36 before going off the left side of the road, entering the median, crossing the eastbound lanes, and driving off the right side of the road. The truck struck a fence and came to rest in a field.

The vehicle received minor damage and Henson did not wear a seat belt.
