The crash happened about 5:34 a.m. Ledesma was driving a 2017 Hyundai Accent westbound on Big Bend Road. Deputies said Ledesma made a left turn at the northbound on-ramp for I-75 and into the path of an eastbound 1996 Kenworth semi-truck with an empty flatbed trailer driven by Clark. The front of the semi-truck struck the right front of the Hyundai, knocking it about 110 feet east before it came to rest.
