A Pine Bluff firefighter from Monticello was killed in a traffic accident on U.S. 425 early Thursday morning when his pickup truck lost traction on the wet highway, spun and crossed the center line into the path of a Freightliner, according to a State Police preliminary report.

Caleb Satterlee, 24, was traveling north at 5:45 a.m. when his truck was struck by the southbound Freightliner about three miles south of the Lincoln County line, according to the report.

The driver of the Freightliner, Kurtis Shepherd, 27, also of Monticello, was not injured.
