A 65-year-old man died Friday morning after a tractor trailer truck lost a tire that flew across the interstate median and crashed through his windshield.
Sitane Souvannasing, originally of Laos but residing in Murfreesboro, Tenn., died from massive head trauma at University Hospital in Louisville, Hardin County Deputy Coroner Ken Spankenberger said.
Souvannasing was a passenger in a box van carrying a delivery of Oriental vegetables north on Interstate 65 early Friday.
According to Kentucky State Police , at around 7:40 a.m., a tractor-trailer truck was traveling south on I-65 about a mile north of Glendale when a wheel came loose from the trailer. It flew across the median and went through the windshield striking the passenger.
The driver of the box van, Somphanh Kanjanabout, 46, of Bowling Green, was treated and released.
The semi, which lost its tire, belonged to One World Logistics. It was driven by Gerald W. Kinnin Jr., 60, of Covington. He was not injured.
