TIFTON -- One man was killed in a two-vehicle accident that occurred late Wednesday night on Interstate 75 in Cook County.

The name of the man killed has not been released, according to the Georgia State Patrol Post 13 in Tifton.

According to the GSP, the man killed was driving a truck loaded with watermelons in the right-hand, southbound lane Wednesday at 10:52 p.m. near the bridge at Exit 32 in the southern part of Cook County. The truck was traveling well under the speed limit and had no tail lights, according to reports.

A tractor-trailer approached the watermelon truck and apparently the driver did not see it before crashing into it. The tractor-trailer driver, whose name was also not released by authorities, was not seriously injured, according to reports.

The Special Collision Reconstruction Team was on the scene late Wednesday night and the GSP was still investigating the accident Thursday afternoon.

No further information was available at press time.
