Cook County - A South Georgia man was killed in a fiery crash on the Interstate.

Duane Beardsley the second of Tifton was driving his Cadillac southbound on I-75 around 6:00 Monday morning when he ran into the back of an 18-wheeler. The car burst into flames.

It happened about two miles south of Exit 45 near Lenox. "We don't know what cause him to crash, but for no apparent reason the Cadillac Seville ran up under the rear end of the tractor trailer," said Sgt. Rusty Harrelson.

The trailer of the 18 wheeler also caught fire but the driver, Thomas Massung of Chatsworth, was not injured. He was hauling thousands of pounds of ice to Florida.
