Friday afternoon, Joseph Bryant was driving a commercial vehicle pulling a fully loaded car hauler eastbound on I-84 when he didn't slow for stopped traffic.

His vehicle hit the rear of a flatbed trailer, which jack-knifed.

A chain reaction crash involving nine other vehicles blocked lanes for about seven hours while crews worked to clear the scene, leaving several drivers injured.
