WINNEMUCCA, Nev. (AP) - An investigation is underway into a wreck that killed the driver of a FedEx triple-trailer truck on Interstate 80 in Winnemucca.

Nevada Highway Patrol Lt. Harold Hughes says the driver was merging in a construction zone Friday morning when he apparently hit orange barrels and lost control of the vehicle.

He told the Elko Daily Free Press ( ) that the truck went off the roadway and rolled, killing the driver and injuring a male passenger.

The names of the two men were not immediately released.

FedEx spokeswoman Allison Houser issued a statement expressing condolences to the driver’s family and friends and saying the company would work directly with affected customers concerning shipments.
