MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

20-year-old Devon Mannery, of Jackson, was killed in a wreck on I-55 north in Madison.

At 11:03 a.m., just north of the Madison/Highway 463 exit near mile marker 108, a delivery truck and Chevy Impala collided when the Impala tried to pass it.

It swerved into the right lane, then tried to cut back in front of the delivery truck. That's when the two cars hit each other. 

The Impala flipped two times into the median and the driver was thrown out of the car. Police say the Mannery died on the scene.

The delivery truck driver was not injured. The interstate was blocked in both directions at the Highway 463 exit while authorities worked to clear the scene.

It re-opened just before 12:30 p.m.
