Troopers say on Thursday, September 22, the driver of a 1994 tractor trailer was traveling north on I95 near the 65-mile marker when he/she went off the left side of the road and struck a guardrail.  The vehicle then overturned, trapping the driver inside.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.  We are working to learn the identity of the victim from the Colleton County Coroner’s Office.

All lanes of I95 NB at the 65-mile marker were blocked for a short time.  It has since reopened to traffic.

We’ll keep you posted with any updates.
