Troopers say the driver crashed into the back of a box truck that was stopped for a separate crash on the highway.

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — North Carolina State Highway Patrol troopers are investigating a deadly crash on I-40 eastbound in Kernersville.

No other injuries were reported in the crash. 

Troopers said they do not believe weather played a factor in the crash. 

The name of the driver killed has not been released.
