Shortly before 4 p.m., 58-year-old Anthony “Tony” Charles Case was exiting his residence on N.C. 208 near the border of North Carolina and Tennessee and did not see the truck before the collision. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The truck was driven by 64-year-old Hickory resident Larry Johnson.
