Blacksburg, NC (November 4, 2023) – A fatal motor vehicle accident reported just outside of a South Carolina truck stop claimed the life of a Florida traveler.
The accident took place at around 11:00 a.m. on November 1.
According to reports provided by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s office, 29-year-old John Victor Vanslytman of Maitland, Florida, was in the parking lot of the Love’s truck stop located at 116 Priester Road. Vanslytman was standing on top of a six-foot ladder while working under the hood of his pickup truck in the parking lot when a tractor-trailer entered the parking lot and struck him as it attempted to make a turn.
The crash pinned the man between the big break and his truck, resulting in severe injuries.
Vanslytman sustained fatal injuries and died while at the scene.
Investigations into the crash are being performed.
We offer our sympathies to the family of John Victor Vanslytman at this time.
