BIG SPRING – An 18-wheeler slammed into a pickup truck on Thursday leaving one driver dead.

The accident happened on FM 669, about three miles north of Big Spring.

DPS officials say a semi was heading south on FM 669 when a pickup truck that was going north tried turning left onto a side road.

The semi crashed into the truck killing 51-year-old Antonio Martinez.

We're told Martinez was wearing a seatbelt but he died at the scene.

The driver of the semi wasn't hurt.
