Posted: Updated:

A Jasper man was killed when two tractor trailers collided on Interstate 20 in Leeds Tuesday.

The Alabama State Troopers reports the crash happened about 8:30am CT on I-20, two miles east of Leeds.

The driver of one big rig, Roger Ladell Brown, 58, of Jasper, died from injuries in the wreck.

The other driver is from Georgia, and was not injured.

A part of I-20 in the area was closed, as power lines were down on the interstate.

Eastbound traffic was rerouted onto Highway 78, until the interstate was reopened about lunchtime.
