The Office of the Medical Investigator on Tuesday released the identity of the truck driver who died in a crash involving three semis on I-40 near Grants.
Last Wednesday, 58-year-old Alfred Jefferson of Red Rock, New Mexico, was ejected from the vehicle when his truck hit another semi that had slowed down to avoid an overturned truck on the interstate.
Jefferson died at the scene.
The collision ignited both trucks and resulted in a fire, shutting down I-40 for several hours.
