Miami County authorities say the driver of a semi hauling processed meat died early this morning when his rig crashed at the intersection of State Roads 18 and 19 west of Converse.
Investigators say the semi was eastbound on highway 18 when the driver apparently missed the intersection of State Road 19, hit a guardrail and overturned, spilling the truck’s load of processed meat. The truck driver was killed in the accident, which happened at about 3 o’clock this morning.
The intersection of highways 18 and 19 is now re-opened to traffic after being closed for nearly seven hours today.
The crash remains under investigation.
