Truck Driver, Jerry Odom Jr., Injured in Willows Crash
The big rig operated by 29-year-old Jerry Odom Jr. was going south on the freeway when for an unknown reason the Cleveland Texas man crossed the center divider. The big rig then collided with the Chevy which was forced to the east shoulder and into a perimeter fence.
Keyser was pronounced dead at the scene.
Meanwhile, CHP added that the tractor of the Volvo ended up on its roof following the collision. Odom was transported to Enloe Medical Center with minor injuries. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
