Witnesses say the trailer started to sway.

Curry then hit the brakes, causing the truck to go sideways into the path of a Ammonium Nitrate Carrier truck at the entrance of Dogwood Rock Quarry.

Curry was killed in the crash.

A portion of Columbia Road near William Few Parkway and High Meadows in that area was closed in both directions due to a potential Ammonium Nitrate leak. Officials determined no leak had occured.
