Florida trucker found dead in rig in Toll Road median

A Florida truck driver died while driving on the Indiana Toll Road Saturday morning after suffering what police described as a medical emergency.

Indiana State Police responded to a report of a semi that was stuck in the median of the Toll Road in LaGrange County. The truck was still running and in gear when the trooper arrived. The driver, Juian J. Oses, 59, of New Port Richey, Fla., was found unresponsive and without a pulse. Troopers performed CPR, but could not revive Oses. He was pronounced dead by the LaGrange County coroner, and an autopsy will be performed.

Police said the rain and melting snow made the median so muddy that the truck couldn’t make it through the median into oncoming traffic, possibly preventing an accident.
