MT. JULIET — A Mt. Juliet man was killed Wednesday after officials say he drove his pickup truck the wrong way down a ramp onto I-40, hitting another truck head-on, killing the driver, and closing down the interstate until late Wednesday evening.
Tennessee Highway Patrol reports sent late Wednesday night say that the Mazda pickup truck driven by Michael E. Pitcock, 52, of Mt. Juliet, “entered I-40 westbound from Mount Juliet Road traveling the wrong direction.”
The Mazda hit a Kenworth tanker truck, carrying hazardous materials, driven by William McGinnis, 62, of Ohio, head-on, killing both drivers instantly.
