The driver of a tank truck that crashed and caught fire in Ohio earlier this week has been identified by authorities.

The Summit County medical examiner’s office said Stevens' death was accidental.

The county sheriff’s office said the tanker truck was northbound on Route 8 and was trying to get on Interstate 271 north when the driver lost control. The truck went over the side of the bridge, landing on the northbound lanes of Route 8 and exploding in flames.

The truck was carrying 7,500 gallons of diesel at the time of the crash.
