Maryland State Police were awaiting information to determine whether a Monday morning vehicle accident caused the death of a 71-year-old Allegany County, Md., man or if he experienced a medical problem before the dump truck he was driving overturned on an interstate ramp.

Alvin Dale Clise, 71, of Midland, Md., was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which was reported at 8:35 a.m., troopers said.

The dump truck was hauling coal eastbound on Interstate 70 and was going onto the ramp to southbound Interstate 81 when Clise lost control of the vehicle and it overturned, troopers said.

An autopsy probably will be performed this week at the Office of the State Medical Examiner in Baltimore, State Police Sgt. S. Wallace said Monday afternoon.

The ramp was closed for at least a few hours Monday morning.
