JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- All lanes of I-295 are open once again at Dunn Avenue after police investigated a fatal crash involving a tractor-trailer.

Troopers say a tractor-trailer truck driver traveling in the southbound lanes of I-295 lost control of his vehicle on Tuesday night while trying to avoid a car entering the on-ramp at Dunn Avenue.

Witnesses say the semi sped across the median and the northbound lanes before crashing down an embankment into a line of trees along the northbound side of the interstate. Investigators say the front of the truck caught fire.

The 61-year-old driver of the semi was pronounced dead at UF & Shands Hospital Jacksonville.
