LINCOLN - A three-vehicle accident on I-20 Friday morning left a Georgia man dead and traffic blocked for some 8 hours, according to Alabama State Troopers.

The accident occurred at 5:50 a.m. at 168 mile marker in Lincoln. Jonathan Graham, 32, of Flowery Branch, Ga., was driving a 2006 Volvo Federal Express truck when he appears to have rear-ended a 2014 International Commercial truck driven by William Rigdon of Toomsuba, Miss.

Rigdon’s vehicle then struck a 2012 Ford pickup truck driven by Charles Cross of Odenville.

Graham was pronounced dead at the scene. Rigdon and Cross were not seriously injured, according to troopers.

I-20 did not fully reopen until 1:20 p.m.

Lincoln Police and Fire departments and other agencies also responded to the accident.
