Investigators say 21 year old Noah Goodwin of Villa Ridge was outside his father's pick-up. The truck was in the right lane of the Interstate with a flat tire. It was rear-ended by a tractor trailer. Police say Goodwin tried to run out of the way, but was hit by the truck, which then overturned.

Goodwin's father, who was in the pickup, was seriously injured.
