A semi truck driver died in a rollover crash near Wallace, Idaho Tuesday evening.

Iouri Karlov, 59, of Brooklyn, New York, was traveling westbound on Interstate 90 near milepost 65 at about 8:45 p.m. when his semi truck and trailer rolled onto its passenger side, left the roadway and traveled through about 20 feet of guardrail, Idaho State Police said in a news release.

Troopers said Karlov was driving too fast for conditions. The roadway was blocked for about five hours.

Karlov was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt.
