The driver of a tractor–trailer died Saturday morning in a one-vehicle crash near Quantico on Interstate 95, authorities say.

The Prince William County sheriff’s office, which also worked the accident, said the driver died at the scene.
The driver’s name was not released yet because relatives were being notified.
