At least one person has died following a two-semi crash in Ellsworth County on Friday.

The KHP says a 41-year-old man from Mexico died in the crash. The driver of the second semi, a 23-year-old man from Jefferson Georgia, received minor injuries.

According to the KHP, the first semi was traveling west on K-156 about half a mile east of the J-156/K-140 junction. It came around a curve and jackn-knifed into the lane of the other semi, causing a head-on collision.   

The crash happened at about 5:20 p.m., but the highway stayed blocked for a few hours as crews worked to clear the scene.

This was the second fatal crash of the day.
