One Victim Dies in Crash on Interstate 57

On Wednesday, around 1:00 p.m., a FedEx truck-tractor double bottom trailer left the road, traveled down a ravine, over-turned, and struck a tree. The 75 year-old driver was pronounced dead on scene, on northbound Interstate 57, at Milepost 63, in a work zone. While in the work zone, the right side steer tire of the truck dropped into a shoulder “cut-out.” The truck continued through the entire length of the cut-out. When the truck reached the end of the cut-out, the truck exited the roadway.
