Montgomery Man Dies in Accident on I-85 Saturday

A two-vehicle has claimed the life of a Montgomery man.

State troopers say the accident happened just after 7:00PM Saturday on I-85 North near mile marker 11.

Troopers says 37-year-old Joseph Dillard was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban at a high rate of speed when he struck the rear of another vehicle, a 2014 Kia Forte.

Dillard swerved after hitting the vehicle, causing his vehicle to roll over and eject him. Troopers say Dillard was not wearing a seatbelt.

Dillard was transported to Baptist Medical Center South where he later died from his injuries.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
