A driver was killed in Ohio Thursday morning after a highway sign tumbled and crushed his truck, police say.
A dump truck was leaving an interstate construction site in Cleveland when it struck a highway sign on westbound I-480, WEWS reported.
The dump truck’s bed was raised, which caused it to hit the sign, according to Cleveland.com.
The sign fell and crushed a passing Ford F-150, killing the driver, WKYC reported.
Officials have not released the name of the victim.
The dump truck driver wasn’t injured, WOIO reported. Officials said they’re investigating to determine if the bed was raised due to a mechanical issue or operator error, according to WEWS.
Traffic was backed up most of the morning, but all lanes were reopened by noon, WOIO reported.
Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the incident, according to Cleveland.com.
