Missing Truck Driver Found Deceased In His Truck

The driver of a logging truck was killed Wednesday afternoon after being stuck by a Union Pacific train, which was running on a track with no active warning device, authorities said.

Last Tuesday, truck driver Stanley Kasprzyk, 58, picked up a load of steel coils from Kenwal Steel in Dearborn.

That was the last time anyone saw or heard from Kasprzyk. Calls from family members to Kasprzyk went unanswered.

Kasprzyk’s family member pinged his cellphone to locate his position and notified the police.

Sadly, on Friday morning, police found Kasprzyk deceased in his truck with the motor running.

An autopsy was performed on Kasprzyk’s body.  The coroner said Kaprzyk died on an apparent heart condition.

Drivers, you need to be aware of the symptoms of a heart attack.

Men’s Symptoms of a Heart Attack:

All men should be familiar with these heart attack symptoms:

  • Chest pain or discomfort that can feel like uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the chest. It may last for more than a few minutes, or it can come and go.
  • Discomfort or pain in other areas, such as one or both arms, the neck, jaw, back or stomach
  • Shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea, or sweating
  • Abdominal discomfort that may feel like indigestion

Chest pain is a classic male heart attack symptom, and men know it well. But they’re often clueless about other symptoms, experts say.

Women’s Symptoms of a Heart Attack:

These chest-related heart attack signs often appear in men, and many women get them, too:

  • Pressure, fullness or a squeezing pain in the center of the chest, which may spread to the neck, shoulder or jaw;
  • Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea or shortness of breath;

But many women don’t have chest pain.

In the Circulation study, common female heart attack symptoms include:

  • shortness of breath (57.9%)
  • weakness (54.8%)
  • unusual fatigue (42.9%)

Women also had these symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Lower chest discomfort
  • Upper abdominal pressure or discomfort that may feel like indigestion
  • Back pain
