UPDATE: Coroner identifies driver in I-75 truck fire
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Madison County coroner says they have identified the man who died after Monday’s fiery I-75 crash. The coroner says 52-year-old Jose Alberto Vizquerra from Miami, Florida, was found dead by firefighters under the Clays Ferry Bridge.
Police say their initial investigation revealed Vizquerra had lost control of the vehicle and struck a barrier before the truck caught fire. Leaking fuel, officials say, then caused a series of explosions.
Fire officials report approximately 100 gallons of diesel fuel leaked into the Kentucky River.
