WINNEMUCCA, Nev. (AP) - An investigation is underway into a wreck that killed the driver of a FedEx triple-trailer truck on Interstate 80 in Winnemucca.

Nevada Highway Patrol Lt. Harold Hughes says the driver was merging in a construction zone Friday morning when he apparently hit orange barrels and lost control of the vehicle.

He told the Elko Daily Free Press that the truck went off the roadway and rolled, killing the driver and injuring a male passenger.

The names of the two men were not immediately released.

FedEx spokeswoman Allison Houser issued a statement expressing condolences to the driver's family and friends and saying the company would work directly with affected customers concerning shipments.
