A 2019 Freightliner Cascadia commercial vehicle was headed north when the commercial vehicle drifted off the right side of the roadway before the driver overcorrected back to the left. The tractor-trailer re-entered the road before colliding with a guardrail, causing it to overturn.
The driver of the Freightliner has been identified as 61-year-old Loudon, Tennessee resident James H. Fitts. Fitts was wearing his seatbelt but later succumbed to his injuries after being transported to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.
A medical condition is being investigated as a possible contributing factor to this accident.
