This happened on June 13 along Interstate 70 eastbound at mile post 55.5 in Fayette County

Ohio investigators found the truck tractor in Cambridge Ohio, which is about 1 1/2 hours away from Columbus. Troopers arrested Ray L. Ryan, 60, who is from Buffalo, Mo. 

Ryan is charged with failing to report an accident that resulted in death.
