Dewayne Phillips, 56, of Crawford, died from injuries sustained in the crash, which occurred shortly before 10:30 a.m. According to reports, Phillips was driving the loaded 1989 Ford tractor-trailer toward Livingston on Highway 84 in Putnam County when the truck veered to the right side of the road while going down a hill.
