The crash happened around 1:30 Thursday afternoon and shut the highway down for several hours while police investigated and debris was cleared.
It’s not clear what caused the crash, but it involved a semi and a sedan.
The passenger in the sedan was killed, while the driver sustained serious injuries, police say.
The semi-truck ended up over an embankment, and its driver was also injured.
