Jan. 28, 2005
A truck driver was found dead inside his rig on I-15 this afternoon.
An incident management unit was dispatched to help the driver...but quickly realized the man was slumped over in the cab.
Paramedics tried to revive the man...but it was too late.
Foul play hasn't been ruled out...but there is evidence it might have been a medical problem.
Troopers say the driver's final actions might have saved lives.
Trooper Brian Olsen, Utah Highway Patrol: "THE DRIVER OBVIOUSLY BEING A PROFESSIONAL DRIVER PULLED OFF THE ROAD WHEN HE'S OBVIOUSLY HAVING A PROBLEM. HE AVOIDED A POTENTIAL PROBLEM WITH OTHER TRAFFIC."
The driver's name won't be released...until his family has been notified.Front line since 1983 and still going strong
