The incident occurred near exit 15 and involved a Ford F-250 pickup truck and an Expedition.

The driver was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries, but there’s no word on whether or not anybody else was injured in that wreck. Law enforcement officials remarked that the driver may have fallen asleep behind the wheel.
