Fatal Wreck on Highway 307

A collision between a pickup truck and an 18-wheeler killed one man this afternoon. Around 2pm,  both trucks were driving west on Highway 307. The driver of the big rig says that's when the pickup made a sudden U turn in front of him. His truck smashed into the smaller vehicle's driver side door, pushing it nearly 50 yards before finally coming to a stop.

The driver of the pickup was still breathing when emergency crews got there, but died before they pulled him from the wreckage.
