JOHNSON COUNTY — A person died after their dump truck became engulfed in flames Wednesday afternoon to the south of Franklin, police say.
Johnson County Sheriff's deputies found the vehicle on fire when they and local firefighters responded about 2:44 p.m. in the 3100 block of South Mauxferry Road, the agency said.
This is Near County Road East 300 South.
The driver was identified as David Timmons, 55, of Franklin.
There were no witnesses to the crash, but it appeared the passenger-side tire went off the road and Timmons over-corrected, causing the vehicle to go into the ditch.
The road was temporarily closed while investigators collected evidence.
Authorities haven't released additional details.
