A 36-year-old male from Purcell, Oklahoma, died on Thursday, October 13, in Plainfield, Indiana, when his pickup truck ran into the back of a semitrailer truck on I-70, reports The Indianapolis Star.

According to Indiana State Police Sergeant Rich Myers, the accident occurred around 4:50 p.m. as the man was traveling west in a 2010 Chevrolet pickup truck at Indiana 267. Traffic had reportedly slowed in a construction zone but the Chevrolet’s driver failed to decrease his speed. He slammed into the rear of the semi.

The victim died at the scene. Neither person inside the semi-truck was injured.

The accident closed all lanes to westbound traffic for three hours.

The victim is survived by his wife and three children, reports The Norman Transcript. He is to be buried on Wednesday at the First Baptist Church in Purcell.
