SMITH COUNTY, Texas (KETK) — Four ejections were reported and one person is dead after a crash in Smith County on I-20 on Tuesday evening.

The driver of the pickup truck, who died at the hospital, was identified as Khaled J. Al Masalmah, 20, of Fort Worth. According to a DPS report, he was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to officials, the crash happened around 8 p.m. near mile marker 549 going westbound toward Lindale.

Sgt. Adam Albritton with the Texas Department of Public Safety said a semi-truck tractor with a trailer was traveling westbound in the right lane while a pickup truck was traveling at a “high rate of speed” behind the trailer.

The pickup truck reportedly struck the left side of the trailer, went into the center median and rolled across the lanes of traffic.

All four occupants were ejected from the pickup truck, Albritton said. They were taken to nearby hospitals, by helicopter and by ambulance in critical condition at the time of the crash. On Wednesday, Albritton said the driver of the truck died at the hospital.

Traffic on I-20 was blocked by the crash but the scene was cleared around 9:50 p.m.
