A van loaded with 11 people, most of them Hispanics, collided with an 18-wheeler in Greene County, Alabama, Wednesday, killing one.

Alabama state troopers said the accident happened around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the southbound lanes of Interstate 20/59, near the town of Knoxville.

One person was killed after being ejected from the van and 10 others were transported to a local hospital. The driver of the 18-wheeler suffered minor injuries.

The crash snarled traffic on both sides of the interstate for much of Wednesday morning.

Authorities are still investigating the exact cause of the crash.
