Police believe Bradford lost control of the truck and it jumped a curb at the intersection, struck a road sign and rolled down a nearby embankment before striking a tree.

Bradford was found dead at the scene when emergency responders arrived.

 

Taylor said the department's Accident Reconstruction Unit is still investigating the crash, but said preliminary investigation indicates Bradford may have suffered a medical emergency that caused him to lose control of the truck.
