A 2019 Freightliner tractor-trailer driven by 35-year-old Sayed Badehzada of Ashburn, Virginia and a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 operated by 36-year-old Troy Turman of Nashville were both traveling west on I-40 at the 333 mile marker when Badehzada lost control and collided with Turman. The tractor-trailer jackknifed and the pickup truck struck a rock embankment. Neither driver was hurt. Badehzada was charged with failure to exercise due care and Turman for driving on an expired registration.
