The second semi then stopped to help the first driver. They attempted to flag down traffic. The driver of the third Shamrock truck saw it, but it was too late. He attempted to drift out of the way, but ended up hitting the rear of the tractor. The driver of the third Shamrock truck suffered major injuries and was declared dead at the scene by the officials. The identity of the deceased will be revealed once the next of kin is notified.
