A fatal wreck shut down I-95 southbound in Hardeeville, South Carolina, around rush hour yesterday evening. Police say the driver of a tractor-trailer was in the left lane near exit five, when the driver tried to get over to the exit ramp and lost control.

The rig ran off the interstate, into the median and smashed into the overpass.

Emergency crews rushed the driver to the hospital, where he died. They're not releasing his name until they notify his family.
