SAPULPA, Okla. – Officials in Sapulpa are investigating a crash that claimed the life of one driver and caused a semi-truck fire.

Investigators say an SUV was going the wrong way on the Turner Turnpike when it collided with a FedEx semi-truck on Thursday night.

The collision caused part of the semi-truck to hang off the side of a bridge and catch fire. Authorities told FOX 23 that the FedEx truck was carrying hazardous material, which made the cleanup process more difficult.

The driver of the SUV, identified as 31-year-old Marshall Douglas, died from his injuries, and the driver of the semi-truck is expected to be OK.

FOX 23 received the following statement from FedEx:

“Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this terrible event. We are cooperating with authorities as they investigate.”
