18-Wheeler Driver Killed After Fiery Truck Crash.

An unidentified truck driver was killed after crashing his truck on Monday.

Reports state that the crash occurred on US Highway 33, on an exit to Interstate 270, in Dublin, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. The driver apparently hit a guardrail on the exit ramp, causing gasoline to spill across the ramp. The truck subsequently caught on fire.

Officials are not yet sure of the exact quantity of gasoline that spilled, though the tanker was capable of holding 8,000 gallons. Both directions of the road were closed most of Monday, though the exit ramp reportedly will be closed for at least a week.

No other vehicles were involved in the wreck. It has not been reported exactly what caused the driver to hit the guardrail.
