Driver dead after slamming into FedEx truck


One person was killed in an accident involving a pickup truck and a FedEx tractor trailer, early Thursday morning.

The deadly crash happened around 1:50 a.m. at the corner of Knight Arnold and Lamar.


The driver of the pickup truck was killed.

It appears the truck was driving on Lamar when it rear-ended the FedEx vehicle near the intersection. At that point, the truck veered into a traffic light transformer box.

The FedEx tractor trailer sustained only minor damage.
