A man killed when his car was crushed beneath an 18-wheeler in Robertson County Thursday has been identified as 26-year-old Carlos Vicente Lopez of Huntsville.

Department of Public spokesman Jimmy Morgan says Lopez was the driver of a Dodge Neon that had been going west on Highway 7 between Kosse and Marquez when he attempted a left turn onto FM 979, taking him directly into the path of an 18-wheeler that was going east.

The car was struck by the larger vehicle and pinned beneath it.

Lopez was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident was reported about 9:15 a.m. Thursday

The intersection was closed for a time, with the highway later opened to one-way traffic for a time, then finally fully reopened about noon.
