A 46-year-old Ashland, Kentucky man has died in an early Friday morning wreck on Interstate 64 a mile west of the Bluford exit.

State Police say Derron Gentry was driving a van that ran into the rear of a semi trailer as it was pulling back onto the interstate after being stopped on the shoulder. Police report the driver of the semi, 35-year-old Tiflu Mogos of Las Vegas, Nevada, had accelerated on the right shoulder with the left turn signal activated to gain speed before merging into the right lane. Both vehicles came to a final rest on the right shoulder.

State Police say charges are pending. Interstate 64 was closed for an extended period of time. The crash occurred at 12:19 Friday morning.
