The force of the impact then pushed the Jeep into the path of the semi.
Oren Miller, 31, was riding in the front passenger seat and died at the scene.
The driver of the Jeep was taken to the hospital for treatment.
The driver of the pickup truck was cited for improper passing.
The semi driver was not hurt.
