MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The driver of a pickup died when his truck, heading south early Wednesday morning in the northbound lanes of I-95 in Martin County, crashed into an SUV killing a passenger in that vehicle, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened just before 2 a.m. at mile marker 100 just before the Kanner Highway interchange.

Troopers identified the pickup driver as Troy Van Snook, 31, of Port St. Lucie. FHP says the wrong-way driver struck a northbound Ford Explorer driven by Karsten Trevor Anderson of Fort Pierce, who is listed in serious condition. His passenger, 26-year-old Bryan Llewellyn Jackson of Port St. Lucie, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other vehicles were involved in the crash.

FHP says a tractor trailer driven by Edwin Luis Ruiz of Port St. Lucie was unable to avoid hitting Anderson's SUV. The impact caused the Ford Explorer to spin into the path of a Mazda MPV driven by Felix Junior Diaz Alonso of Miami. He received minor injuries. The Explorer eventually overturned and ended up on its side. 

All northbound traffic was diverted until 8:20 a.m. when one lane was reopened.
