Northbound 287 is back open after a deadly crash killed a man from Cypress Wednesday morning. It happened near the Clay -- Montague County line just outside of Bellevue around 5:30 Wednesday morning.

DPS Trooper Tony Fulton says 54-year-old Michael Ray Leggett was killed when his pickup hit the end of a semi carrying medical supplies and was lodged underneath. Fulton says they are still investigating to find out what exactly lead to the crash.

Fulton say the crash caused saline solution from the semi to spill onto the road -- and a health inspector was called to clear the scene causing TXDOT to re-route northbound traffic around the crash.

Fulton says the truck driver from Center, Texas was not injured.
