Lanes of Interstate 70 were closed near the 31 mile marker in Putnam County after a fatal crash Monday afternoon.
One person was killed and two others were injured in the crash, which involved two semi trucks and a passenger car.
Police said the collision happened on westbound I-70 when one of the semis failed to slow down for a construction zone, striking the other semi in the rear and pushing it into the passenger car.
The driver of the truck that didn't stop was pronounced dead at the scene. Police later identified the victim as Robert P. Deakin, 46, of Avon.
The Putnam County Coroner said Deakin died of blunt force trauma.
The driver of the other truck and the driver of the passenger car were both taken to Putnam County Hospital, but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.
The westbound lanes of I-70 were closed after the crash, and traffic was diverted onto US 231 North to US 40 West. Police said one lane was expected to be open by 5 p.m.
