Truck driver dies after losing control of vehicle

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says a truck driver died after losing control of a semi on a highway ramp.

The accident happened about 1 a.m. Sunday when the truck was moving from southbound Highway 13 to eastbound Highway 30.

The driver lost control and the truck slid through the guard rail and into a ditch, overturning several times.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff’s office was withholding the driver’s name until relatives could be notified.
