Driver dies at wheel of Rock Hill logging truck, crash stalls traffic

 — A truck driver died Monday morning while driving an empty logging truck on Heckle Boulevard in Rock Hill, police say.

At about 7 a.m., police were called to a single-vehicle crash after the truck veered off the side of the road, crossing the median and several other lanes before stopping in the woods, said Rock Hill Police Executive Officer Mark Bollinger. The driver was headed towards Newport past Hollis Lakes Road and wasn't carrying any cargo.

No other injuries were reported and no other vehicles involved in the accident, Bollinger said.

The police department's traffic accident investigation team is still on scene trying to determine what happened, Bollinger said, but it appears he might have died of a medical issue prior to the wreck.

Police have called out a wrecker to get the truck out of the woods, he said.

The driver's identity wasn't available pending family and company notification, said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.

Gast was unable to name a cause of death, but she said it's likely "natural."

There are plans for an autopsy later Monday.

Check back later for more details on this developing story.
