A Scott man died in a crash this morning along Interstate 79 in Washington County.

Jonathan Charles Silko, 27, was driving a Toyota sedan south on I-79 when he went off the road about 9:45 a.m. and struck the rear of a parked tractor-trailer at the Marianna-Prosperity exit in Amwell, according to the Washington County coroner's office.

Mr. Silko died of head injuries in the crash, which Coroner Timothy Warco ruled accidental. The road was snow-covered at the time, he said.
