Deputies say the preliminary investigation revealed that thirty-two year old Martino D. Telstead of Campti was operating a 2008 GMC pickup truck traveling northbound on US-71 when for unknown reasons at this time drifted across the center-line striking a southbound 2004 Peterbilt eighteen wheeler.

Traffic charges are pending.
The crash is being investigated by Deputy N. Brown assigned to the NPSO Patrol Division.
