The Cadiz man who stopped to assist a motorist who had hit a deer on 68 in Trigg County Monday night has died from the injuries he sustained when a tractor-trailer ran into both vehicles.
Officials at Vanderbilt University Medical Center say 47-year old Scotty Gray of Cadiz died Tuesday night from his injuries. Gray was wearing his seat belt in his vehicle when the semi driven by 50-year old Mohamed Mohamud of Missouri hit him from behind.
The collision knocked a vehicle into 20-year old Nicholas Wiseman of Cadiz, who is in stable condition at Vanderbilt. Wiseman had been standing near his vehicle, which had become disabled from hitting a deer just after 8pm Monday.
