      A four-vehicle accident near Bushland resulted in the death of a semi truck driver.

      On Friday evening, a 2010 Volvo and a 2013 refrigerated semi truck were traveling east on Interstate 40 in the right hand lane. Two additional refrigerated semi trucks were also in the right hand lane. One of the semi trucks hit another from behind, subsequently causing the vehicles to block both eastbound lanes of I-40.

      The semi truck who struck another from behind caught on fire, and the fire spread to all units. The driver of this semi, 64-year-old Joginder Dhillon from Fresno, Calif., was pronounced dead on the scene.
