Man killed in tractor-trailer crash
An Edgewater man was killed Wednesday when he crashed his car into the back of a tractor-trailer that had pulled to the shoulder of Route 50 near Route 704, authorities said.
The driver of the car, Kenneth Charles Jones, 32, was traveling east on Route 50 when he began to swerve. His car traveled from the left shoulder of the road to the right shoulder, where it struck a tractor-trailer that had pulled over because its driver heard a buzzer indicating a problem with the truck. Jones was killed in the crash. No one else was hurt.
Police do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, which occurred just before 4 p.m. They said a preliminary examination of Jones’s body by the medical examiner revealed that he might have had a medical emergency that contributed to the crash.
