Truck Driver Dies After Being Covered With Hot Tar

The driver of a tanker truck carrying hot tar suffered fatal injuries when the vehicle rolled into a ditch in eastern North Dakota, tipping over and sending tar into the cab.

The driver was identified as 21-year-old Bradley Jackson of Woodlands, Manitoba. A GoFundMe page set up for Jackson said he suffered burns to 95 percent of his body, and died three days after being taken to the burn unit in Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. Sgt. Ryan Panasuk says some of the hot tar flowed into the cab of the truck while Jackson was still inside.
