Driver in fatal 18-wheeler crash on Highway 280 identified

HOMEWOOD, AL (WBRC) – The driver of an 18-wheeler is dead following an accident at the Red Mountain Expressway southbound at the eastbound ramp to Highway 280.

23-year-old Maja Tomevska's truck flipped on its side as it attempted to exit Red Mountain Expressway.
