Victim's name released in deadly I-75 crash

Interstate 75 in southern Kentucky reopened early Tuesday morning after a deadly crash.

State Police say a pickup truck was stopped in the middle of the southbound lanes near the 26 milemarker in Whitley County when a semi came up on it.

The tractor trailer's driver tells police he couldn't stop in time and slammed into the truck, sending it at least 100 feet.

Its driver, 65-year-old Larry Rogers of Corbin, was killed.

The semi's driver wasn't injured.
