Ochlocknee --  One person is dead, two are seriously injured after an accident in Thomas County Thursday afternoon.

It happened around 1:30 at Egg and Butter Road and Highway 188. Troopers say it appears a small tractor trailer ran a stop sign and hit the large semi truck.

The semi slid down highway 188 and caught fire. The driver died inside the truck.

The two people in the smaller truck were taken to the hospital. Charges are pending against the driver. That portion of Highway 188 could remain closed for several more hours.
