The driver of a log truck was pronounced dead at the scene after his truck overturned.

The one-vehicle wreck occurred on the Beltline near the South Saunders Street interchange.

Fifty-four-year-old Eric Gene Simmons of Sanford was killed. He was operating a truck owned by Elliott Logging, Inc. out of Sanford.

Some of the westbound lanes of the Beltline were closed, causing slow flowing traffic in the lanes that remained opened.
