The Nebraska State Patrol says a driver found dead in his truck off Interstate 80 near Giltner Friday night likely swerved off the road because of a medical emergency.

Investigators say 56-year-old Charles Westwood was east of Grand Island when his semi swerved, went off the road and crashed through a fence just before 7 p.m. There was little damage to the truck, but Westwood was pronounced dead at the scene.
