The Honda CRV came to rest on the north shoulder of the interstate with severe damage. The driver was pronounced dead. The driver of the semi-truck sustained minor injuries.

People really outta try to slow down , remember better slowly but surely than rapidly but in doubt.
When your auto is having trouble you go to the shoulder of the road. Who leaves a auto in left lane with lights off . I feel bad for the trucker
