A truck driver from Waco was found dead after his tractor trailer went off the road just before 7 p.m. Friday on Interstate 80.

Charles Westwood, 56, was east of Grand Island, near Giltner, when his truck swerved, went off the road and crashed through a fence. There was little damage to the truck, but Westwood was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Nebraska State Patrol office in Grand Island.

Westwood probably swerved off the road because of a medical emergency, State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.
