The driver of a heavy truck was trapped behind the wheel for some time Thursday morning after a major accident on highway 20 near Coteau-du-Lac.

He was pronounced dead in hospital.

He was driving eastbound on the 20 in the right lane when he hit a van that was protecting Transport Quebec workers as they removed cones from the road. 

The van then hit a truck which is used to load on the cones.

None of the workers were injured.

The highway in the area was closed for several hours before reopening around the noon hour.
