BOVINA, Miss. (AP) - The driver of an 18-wheeler was killed after officials say the truck ran off of Interstate 20 in Warren County.

WLBT-TV (https://bit.ly/1ILu2hw ) reports the driver died Sunday night after running into a median and striking several trees. Highway Patrol trooper Eric Henry says he was dead at the scene and crews are working to clean up the wreck.

The driver’s name was not immediately released.

Henry says the truck was with Big Four Trucking out of Louisiana and was carrying petroleum.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation said cleanup will be underway around mile marker eight on I-20 and could take several days.
