A one-car fatality stopped interstate traffic late Sunday afternoon after a driver reportedly rear-ended a tractor trailer at the 193 mile marker on I-45 outside Fairfield. Four people were traveling northbound in a 2017 Nissan Rogue driven by 49-year-old Farideh Khajeai of Norman, Oklahoma. Accident reports show Khajeai and two other passengers were injured, while a fourth passenger, 61-year-old Dannil Sherif, was ejected from the vehicle and killed. His cause of death was reported as blunt force trauma to the head. Reports show Sherif was not wearing a seat belt and was riding in the back seat. According to information taken at the scene, Khajeai said she was “nervous while approaching the tractor trailer” and went off the road into the center median.
