Fiery Crash Shuts Down I-75

A fiery crash on I-75 killed one man and shut down the highway for hours.
It happened just before 5:00PM in the northbound lanes of I-75 at mile marker 49, near the Laurel-Rockcastle county line.
Police say for some reason a semi ran off the road, then slid along the rock wall before it burst into flames.
The driver, who police say is from Michigan, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Dozens of crates of refrigerated Tyson chicken spilled all over the road.
Police say there were no witnesses to the crash. They are still investigating.
