Miss. truck driver killed in La. accident

Posted: Updated:

RAYVILLE, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a Mississippi truck died in four-vehicle accident on Interstate 20 earlier this week.

Trooper Albert Paxton says 54-year-old Don Knight of Pearl, Mississippi, died in Tuesday's fiery chain reaction accident.

Paxton says Knight's 18-wheeler ran into the back of another big rig which hit the back of a car pushing it into the back of another 18-wheeler.

He says Knight failed to slow down for other vehicles that were stopped due to traffic congestion in the work zone.

Paxton says Knight died in the burning cab of his tractor-trailer rig.
