The truck driver who died in the fiery crash on southbound I-75 has been identified as Jose Alberto Vizquerra, 52, of Miami, Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison said Tuesday.
Vizquerra was driving on the Clays Ferry Bridge early Monday when he lost control of the tractor-trailer and slammed into a barrier, where the truck's cab caught fire. His body was found by Lexington firefighters on the bank of the Kentucky River about 400 feet below the bridge.
It remained unclear whether Vizquerra jumped from or was thrown from the cab.
Cornelison said Vizquerra's death was caused by "blunt-force trauma," not burns.
