A Pennsylvania man has died after an accident on Interstate 79 in Monongalia County Monday.
The driver, Michael Fair, 73, apparently suffered a medical emergency while driving south on I-79 at the 159 mile marker, by the Pennsylvania state line.
Police say there was no sign Fair tried to stop before hitting the embankment where the truck rolled over. It landed on the guardrail.
Fair was pronounced dead at the hospital. Troopers suspect he died from the medical condition, rather than the crash itself. An autopsy is pending.
The West Virginia State Police are investigating.
