Traffic on County Farm Road and north to Interstate 10 is likely to remain congested today until 10 a.m. for cleanup from a fatal crash and a diesel spill.

Sheriff's Maj. Tony Sauro said one person died shortly after 6 a.m. when a tractor-trailor-style dump truck and a pickup collided on County Farm Road.

The victim's name is being withheld pending notification of relatives.

Sauro said diesel spilled and debris was strewn along a stretch of road and in ditches.
