We now have an update on Monday's fatal crash on I-75, between the Wenona and Arabi Exits. The tractor trailor truck veered off the highway and struck several construction workers in a work zone.

The truck driver, 49-year-old Billy Dale Rose of Byron, and one of the highway workers, 49-year-old Melvin Day of Rochelle, were killed.

Monday, we reported eight people were injured, but state troopers now confirm that only four workers were injured. 26-year-old Scott Day of Pitts is in fair condition at Crisp Regional Hospital. Those who have been treated and released from the hospital are 34-year-old Mario Perez of Cordele, 32-year-old Jose Perez-Diaz of Unadilla and 26-year-old Robert Keith Mattair of Abbeville.

Georgia State Patrol Troopers are trying to find out why the truck driver veered off the highway.

A witness says the driver's head drifted down just before the crash.
