JACKSON (AP) — A Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper has been killed in a wreck on Interstate 40.

THP spokesman Lt. Bill Miller tells news outlets that Trooper Matthew Gatti was responding to a car fire Monday afternoon when he lost control of his car and hit a tractor-trailer.

He says Gatti's car then spun into another tractor-trailer. The 24-year-old Gatti was pronounced dead at the scene.

A THP release says Gatti was a corrections officer in Madison County before he became a trooper last summer.

The interstate was blocked until late Monday night. An investigation is ongoing.
