ATLANTA, Ind. (WTHR) - One person is dead after a crash involving a semi tractor-trailer in northern Hamilton County.

It happened just before 1:00 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. 31 at 281st Street.

Hamilton County deputies said the semi was northbound on U.S. 31 in the right lane and did not see construction vehicles and arrow boards, signs directing traffic to merge into the left lane. Police said the driver of the semi was unable to merge or stop in time to avoid collision with the rear of a road construction vehicle. The impact forced the construction vehicle into 32-year-old Justin Nance of Anderson, a construction worker at the work site.

Nance died as a result of his injuries.
