52-year-old Joel Knight of Kershaw County, died at the scene of the incident, which unfolded on South Carolina Route 522 around 6:30 p.m.

His truck then crashed into a fence. Knight was wearing a seat belt. Police said that the cow also died at the scene.

Knight’s family members filed a lawsuit against Ford, saying that he died because the airbag deploy with great force, causing a metal shard to strike his neck and kill him.
