Police say 44-year old James Wright tried to exit from the passing lane while a semi-tractor truck was in the driving lane. Wright reportedly swerved to avoid the accident, over-corrected, drove into the median and hit a guardrail before traveling back into the traffic lanes where he was hit by the semi.
The driver of the semi was not hurt. No word on the extent of Wright's injuries.
