The male driver of the semi was checked on the scene and released.

The semi driver told firefighters that he was headed to New Jersey after picking up goods from an Amazon warehouse in Oklahoma City two days ago.

He said he pulled over almost immediately after the car hit him from behind.

Debris around 300 ft. long covered the right shoulder of 1-70 EB after the crash.

The 23-year-old victim's condition was later listed as serious.
