The driver of a box truck that rear-ended a tractor-trailer Tuesday in Jessamine County died Wednesday.
The Fayette County coroner identified the driver as Joshua Lawson, 25.
Lawson was driving the truck north when he crashed into the tractor-trailer near the intersection of U.S. 27 and Catnip Hill Road north of downtown Nicholasville. The tractor-trailer, also northbound, was in the center turn lane waiting to make a left turn into a BP station. The crash happened about 2 p.m.
A witness told police that the front driver's-side tire blew out on the box truck before the crash, police said.
