1. Carl Lockehart was 47 years old. He lived in Oxford.
The truck driver either received minor injuries or no apparent injuries at all. It wasn’t really clear which one because the trucker was reportedly sent to the hospital as a “precaution.”
Lockehart slammed into the rear of the semi truck. Police have some possible factors in mind as to how this may have happened. They include sun glare combined with the terrain in that area, which has a lot of hills. Lockehart’s vehicle also caught on fire.
There are no charges at this time, and it seems none is expected absent some new information.
