THREE RIVERS - A crash on Interstate 37 just outside of Three Rivers has claimed the life of a driver for food supplier, Ben E. Keith.
A Department of Public Safety Trooper at the scene says it appears 42-year-old Miguel Rivera Jr. of Corpus Christi may have fallen asleep at the wheel.
The truck swerved into the median before heading down a concrete embankment. A fuel tank ruptured and the entire rig was engulfed in flames.
I-37 was shut down for two hours as crews cleared the wreckage.
