A one vehicle accident claimed the life of the driver Tuesday evening near mile marker 101 on Interstate 69 in Madisonville.
A preliminary investigation by the Kentucky State Police revealed 55-year-old Jesse Steven Gott, of Dexter, Missouri, was operating a 2015 Peterbilt, with trailer-in-tow, southbound on I-69 when for unknown reasons the vehicle crossed the median and both northbound lanes of travel.
The vehicle then struck a guardrail and the concrete bridge end of the Wells Road overpass, before overturning multiple times.
Gott was pronounced dead at the scene by the Hopkins County Coroner.
The accident remains under investigation by the Kentucky State Police.
