    An overnight crash on Tuesday left one person dead in Fort Worth.

    The crash happened shortly before 1 a.m. on Interstate 35W where investigators said the driver of a car exiting Loop 820 onto I-35W hit a flatbed truck entering the roadway from a construction area.

    The male driver, who has not yet been identified, was killed when his car became wedged underneath the truck.

    The driver of the truck was uninjured.

    The southbound lanes of I-35W were shutdown for several hours after the crash but reopened before 5:30 a.m.

    The cause of the wreck is still under investigation.
