Posted: Updated:

ETOWAH COUNTY, Ala. -- A Rainbow City man was killed in an accident on Interstate 59 near Attalla, where he was driving in the wrong direction before colliding with an 18-wheeler, Alabama State Troopers said.

Santos Reyes, 26,  died in the crash that occurred around 2:30 a.m. on I-59 South near mile marker 178.7, which is around three miles south of Attalla. According to state troopers, Reyes was traveling northbound in a southbound lane of the interstate before hitting a tractor-trailer. The driver of the truck wasn't injured.

Reyes wasn't wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident and authorities believe alcohol may have been a factor.

An investigation remains ongoing.
