Darrell Ward, star of the History Channel’s reality series “Ice Road Truckers”, has been killed in a plane crash. He was 52.

The news was announced in a press release via Ward’s official Facebook page.

According to the statement, Ward had just left the Great American Truck Show in Dallas and was heading to Missoula on Sunday to begin filming a new documentary series involving the recovery of plane crashes.

Missoula County Sheriff’s Captain Bill Burt told FOX News that the pilot attempted to regain control by landing on a small airstrip when “something went drastically wrong.”

The plane then crashed onto the shoulder of the I-90 highway, reported Variety.

“In his free time, you could usually find Darrell giving back to the community any chance he got,” the statement read.

statement shortly.”
