On Tuesday at 10:01 a.m., the North Platte fire and police departments were dispatched to the 300 block of Eugene Ave. to check out a report of a possibly deceased subject.
Upon arrival, a 64-year-old man was found in his semi-truck. It was determined the male died of natural causes and foul play is not suspected. The next of kin was notified, a North Platte police spokesman said.
The driver was from Des Moines, IA and worked for Twin Rivers Logistics of Clive, IA. He had been parked for a prolonged time. The person who discovered him told the Bulletin that he called the company, who said they had been trying to get in touch with the driver but had not had a reply.
Twin Rivers Logistics is a long-haul trucking company that transports food products to the lower 48 states, according to the company website
