• 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.

    FedEx issued the following statement:

    "Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to those involved in this morning's accident. We are cooperating with local officials in their investigation."
