A man is dead following an early morning crash today on Interstate 69 in DeKalb County, officials said.

Details aren't immediately clear, but DeKalb County Sheriff's deputies responded to the accident involving three semi trucks about 3:15 a.m. The driver of one of the vehicles apparently loss control and rolled the rig onto its side. Another semi was traveling behind and came to a stop.

A third semi may have been unable to yield when the driver came up on the crash and rammed into one of the other rigs. The three-vehicle collision resulted in the third driver's vehicle bursting into flames. He was killed, sheriff's deputies said. One of the semi trucks was carrying livestock.
