truckdriver was killed Monday night when his semi jackknifed on
a rain soaked I-65 bridge near Decatur, AL, smashed through a
concrete guardrail and plunged into the Tennessee River.
Neil Brown, 27, of Bremen, swerved to miss a car during heavy
rain at about 6 p.m., according to published reports. The truck
apparently bounced off the left guardrail in the southbound lane,
then crashed through the right guardrail and plummeted into the
Brown's body from the submerged truck cab about two hours later.
Southbound lanes stayed closed until late Monday night.
