AIKEN, SC-- A family is mourning the loss of a 7-year-old boy after a crash in Aiken. Investigators say Glen Adam Miller, Jr. died in that accident.

It happened around 9:00 Wednesday night on Highway One near York Street and Rutland Drive.

An unloaded 18-wheeler slammed into an SUV when it tried to make a u-turn in front of it. The boy was thrown from the car, hitting the 18-wheeler. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Other family members were in the car with him. The driver was 17-year-old Audrianna Miller. 10-year-old Vanessa Miller and 14-year-old Jessica Miller were also in the car.

All three went to the hospital, but we're told their injuries do not appear to be life threatening. No word on whether they were wearing seatbelts.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was not hurt.

Officers are not sure who will be charged in this accident. This marks the 44th fatal accident in Aiken County this year.

    To Megan and all of the Miller family, May God keep you strong through this tragedy. Someone very special sent the following poem to me when I dealt with a senseless loss, and somehow, it helped. I hope it helps you as well. I'll be praying for you all to find hope and peace.

    When the warmth of the sun touches my face,
    I see your smile and feel your embrace.

    I hear the whisper of love in the wind
    And I know that you are close to me again

    The rain speaks of tears and the thunder of pain,
    But soon the sun comes the earth to reclaim.

    As the days come and go and the world moves on,
    I know you're still here, you'll never be gone.

    On the night the Angel came and took your hand,
    We cried as you left for an unknown land.

    But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,
    For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!

    God bless you all! Megan, I'm here if you need anything.

    Glen and Tracie and Family I love you and all my prayers are with you. We will all miss Adam and have wonderful memories of him. He is going to be in Jesus arms and forever in our hearts. May you understand this someday and just grow closer from this tragic accident. The Lord will comfort you. All my love.
