State trooper, paramedics can’t save man slumped at wheel

Passing motorists called 911 about 5 p.m. Saturday to alert police to a man who had pulled to the side of the road, lost consciousness and was slumped over the steering wheel.

The incident happened in the southbound lanes of Highway 509,  a short distance from the First Avenue South Bridge, according to the Washington State Patrol.  The first State Patrol trooper at the scene performed CPR on the 83-year-old Seattle man until paramedics arrived and transported him to Highline Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

He has not been identified.
