The Florida Highway Patrol said one person was killed when two tractor-trailers were involved in a wreck Friday morning in Indian River County.

The crash was reported at 7:21 a.m. on State Road 60 near the intersection of County Road 512.

FHP Sgt. Mark Wysocky said one semi was slowing down when another ran into it.  This caused one of the tractor-trailer to jackknife and the other vehicle to run off the road.

All eastbound and westbound lanes of State Road 60 are closed.

The victim's name has not been released.
