BUTLER TWP., Ohio (WDTN) - A truck driver from Missouri was killed in an accident on Interstate 70 Tuesday night.
Troopers said Benjium Terry, 41, of Lebanon, Mo. was westbound near I-75 when he rear ended another truck around 6:30 p.m.

Investigators said Terry failed to notice the slowed traffic in front of him in time to stop.
"This is the most devastating commercial vehicle crash I have ever seen in 14 years," said Lt. Mark Nichols, Ohio State Highway Patrol. "The impact to the rear of the vehicle took the entire front of the cab off and the roof of the cab and embedded it into the trailer of this red semi."
A third semi and several other cars then became snarled in the crash.
The backup was caused by an earlier crash a few miles away, also in the westbound lanes of I-70, where a car and a semi truck collided. No serious injuries were reported there.
