At the time of the accident, the rig was hauling hundreds of gallons of syrup and traveling southbound when it rolled after the driver failed to negotiate a right curve. The truck finally came to rest in a grass field along the side of the road.
Police have not yet been able to identify the driver who was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
The highway is currently closed.
