Winchester, Va. - A man is dead after losing control of his semi truck on Interstate-81 near mile marker 318 in Winchester Tuesday morning.
The driver, Michael Goodwin of Jacksonville, was taken to Winchester Medical Center, where he later died.
Virginia State Police say Goodwin’s semi-truck was traveling northbound when the trailer jackknifed.
The semi ran off the right side of the road, and the cab of the truck struck a tree.
They say the dangerous road conditions and speed at which Goodwin was traveling were factors in the crash.
