A 57-year-old man was killed in a motor vehicle accident Sunday afternoon on U.S. 60/84.

The crash occurred around 4 p.m. in front of Indian River Transport at 4100 Mabry Dr., according to police records.

Clovis Police Chief Sanders said the man’s identity is not being released at this time to ensure notification to next of kin.

The man was driving westbound when his pickup collided with the back of a tractor trailer that had slowed to turn into the Indian River Transport parking lot on the north side of the road, Sanders said.

Sanders classified the man’s condition as “extremely unstable” at the scene and said he was pronounced dead at Plains Regional Medical Center.

No citations were issued, and Sanders said the crash is still under investigation.
