Morgan crossed the median and struck a northbound 2017 Dodge Ram pickup on Interstate 255. Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene.
The pickup driver was taken to a local hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries, Dye said.
His condition Sunday was not immediately known.
Dye said weather conditions were bad Saturday but calls for service slowed after 8 p.m. He credited drivers with heeding warnings about road conditions and staying off highways.
