MIDLAND COUNTY -- A 21-year-old from Mississippi died Tuesday trying to cross into the median from the right-hand lane on I-20, according to state troopers.
Investigators say Antonio D. Reese didn't see an 18-wheeler in the left-hand lane when he tried the cross. The tractor-trailer rammed Reese's F-150, killing him.
Reese's passenger, 21-year-old Lorico D. Lane, who is also from Mississippi, was hurt and taken to the hospital.
The driver of the 18-wheeler wasn't hurt.
The wreck happened about four miles west of the City of Midland.
