A truck driver was killed in a fiery crash on Highway 411 in White Tuesday morning.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, the tractor-trailer driven by 48-year old Roderick Eubanks crested a hill and struck a car that was stopped in the roadway.

The tractor-trailer continued on, struck a DOT sign and a power pole before coming to rest and catching on fire.

The fire spread from the tractor to two houses.

Residents from both homes were able to get out safely.

Eubanks was killed and the driver of the car was taken to Kennestone Hospital for treatment.
