NORTH EAST, Md. (AP) — Maryland state police have released the identity of a semi-truck driver who was killed over the weekend when his vehicle overturned on Interstate 95.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports 32-year-old Benjamin Pula died in the Sunday morning crash near North East and Rising Sun.
The newspaper says Pula’s LinkedIn page says he was a semi-truck driver based in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he also helped manage a dairy goat farm.
His semi-truck overturned just miles from the Delaware state line.
The flipped vehicle’s cab was cut in half by a guardrail and the rest of the vehicle split open, leaving hundreds of cases of beer spilled across the roadway.
Traffic was diverted for hours. The cause of the crash is unclear. An investigation is ongoing.
