One person is dead after a collision between two trucks on Interstate 75 north in south Bibb County.

The accident happened around 9:50 a.m. north of mile marker 154.

Lt. Sean DeFoe of the Bibb County Sheriff's Office says a large tractor trailer truck apparently had a mechanical problem that forced it to stop in a travel lane.

A smaller work truck struck the tractor trailer from behind.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said the driver died around 10:40 a.m., about an hour after the accident was reported.
