HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A jury in western Kentucky has convicted a Minnesota truck driver of reckless homicide for a crash on Interstate 24 that resulted in the death of a man.

The Kentucky New Era reports jurors on Thursday also convicted Timothy Baldwin on counts of wanton endangerment, evading police and resisting arrest.

Baldwin was charged in the death last year of 69-year-old Harold Johnson. Police said Baldwin was driving his tractor-trailer when it rear-ended the other man's vehicle.

Police have said they believe Baldwin was under the influence of drugs when the crash occurred. Baldwin disputed that during the trial, saying he used methamphetamine after the crash and before his arrest.
