The driver of an 18-wheeler was killed when the truck overturned early Thursday morning on I-65 in Giles County, according to Tennessee State Troopers.

Authorities said the wreck happened on I-65 near mile marker 10 between Bryson Road and Fayetteville Highway around 2 a.m. Thursday.

Troopers identified the driver as 63-year-old Gary Layne, of Missouri.

Troopers said Layne ran off the side of the road, over-corrected and then ran off the other side of the interstate.

Southbound traffic continued to be detoured onto Fayetteville Highway Thursday afternoon, as crews worked to get the truck flipped over.
