A 74-year-old Olympia man died after a semi truck crashed on southbound State Route 167 this afternoon near the ramp to eastbound State Route 410 just west of Sumner, according to the State Patrol. (Washington State Patrol)

A 74-year-old Olympia man died when the semi truck he was driving tipped over on State Route 167 southbound near the ramp to eastbound State Route 410 in Pierce County this afternoon, a State Patrol spokesman said.

The man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, showed no signs of obvious major trauma, and the driver’s area of the truck was intact, State Patrol spokesman Guy Gill said. That led responders to believe his death could have been related to a medical condition. ┬áThe Pierce County Medical Examiner’s office will make an official determination of the cause of death.

No other vehicles were involved in the collision, and no one else was injured, Gill said. Impairment is not suspected, he said.

The truck was carrying 40,000 pounds of pumpkins and apples, which had to be offloaded from the trailer before it could be righted, Gill said.
