Police say a car cut in front of a pickup truck in the eastbound lanes of the interstate. The initial investigation leads officers to believe that's what caused the truck to rear-end the passenger car.

Emergency responders found the driver of the car badly injured. He was transported to University Hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead about an hour later.

Wednesday the coroner's office identified the man as Daniel W. Allen, 68, of Troutville, Virginia. He died from multiple blunt force trauma suffered during the crash.

No one else was in the car with him, according to police.

The driver and one passenger in the truck were taken to the hospital. They are both expected to be okay.

LMPD's Traffic Unit is investigating.
