(KMOV) -- A elderly man was killed in a car accident on I-44 Thursday morning.
 
It happened around 9:30 a.m. as the David Finnegan, 73, was entering the ramp from northbound I-55 to westbound I-44 near downtown St. Louis.
 
As Finnegan drove onto the ramp, his truck left the road, hit a curb, crossed both lanes of traffic on the westbound ramp, hit a tree and came to a stop.
 
Finnegan was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
 
No word yet on what caused the driver to lose control of his truck.
