MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Florida Highway Patrol has identified a man killed in a Thursday morning crash along Interstate 75.

The crash happened at 12:20 a.m. Thursday near mile marker 358 on I-75 South in Marion County.

Troopers say the man was driving southbound in a Toyota Camry, near a semi-truck that was also traveling southbound.

For unknown reasons, the Camry and the semi-truck collided, causing the Camry to spin out and crash into the side of a second semi-truck that was parked on the right paved shoulder of I-75.

The driver of the Camry, 94-year-old Joseph Williams, of Ocala, died from his injuries.

The drivers of both semi-trucks escaped without injury.

Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
