An 18-wheeler driver died in a crash on Interstate 10 Wednesday morning after his rig went off the highway and crashed into the Navidad River.

The accident happened shortly after 8 a.m. on April 24. The rig was heading west pulling an empty flatbed trailer when it left the roadway and entered the center median as it approached the West Navidad River Bridge.

The truck went airborne as it went off the steep river bank, crashing through the tops of trees before it landed at the bottom of the river.
