One person is dead after a crash on I-24 in Christian County Tuesday.

The crash happened near the Pennyrile Parkway interchange around 4:40 p.m.

Police say 63-year-old Carl Mason was driving eastbound in a 1989 Chevrolet pickup truck, and according to witnesses, he was making abrupt lane changes, driving off into the median and passing in the right lane.

Police say Mason tried to exit at mile marker 81 but wasn't able to make the right turn and went off the left shoulder of the roadway and into an embankment.

Mason's vehicle overturned and hit a ditch filled with large rocks.

Mason was pronounced dead at the scene.
