A 36-year-old Snellville, Georgia, man died when his tractor-trailer collided with another tractor-trailer on I-75 in Suwannee County on Sunday.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) release, the Georgia tractor-trailer driver was traveling southbound on I-75 near mile marker 441 at 4:40 p.m. when he rear-ended another tractor-trailer traveling in the same direction. A 60-year-old Miami man was driving the tractor-trailer that was hit.

Both tractor-trailers came to a stop on the right emergency lane facing south, but the Georgia driver’s cab caught fire.

I drove passed it going home, I hate I had to see this. I felt there since of death. I send my condolences to his family. This was the worst I’ve ever seen first hand, Jesus the way that cabin was smashed. My Lord
