Michigan State Police investigating after 30 year old truck driver found dead in cab in Detroit


A truck driver passed away after he was found unresponsive in his vehicle blocking a Detroit interstate on Tuesday evening.

Michigan State Police (MSP) responded to I-75 southbound near Schaefer Highway in Detroit around 6:45 p.m. on November 29 after receiving multiple calls about a semi truck blocking the left lane of the interstate.

When troopers made contact with the truck driver inside the cab, he was unresponsive and had no detectable pulse.

Troopers administered Narcan and requested emergency medical services.

MSP says that the Narcan was not effective and CPR was used to attempt to revive the truck driver.

A defibrillator was also used but was not effective.

Troopers said that the life-saving measures were ultimately not effective and that the truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The identity of the truck driver has not been released pending notification of kin, but he was described as a 30 year old from Taylor.

MSP says an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
