The name of a truck driver who died in a traffic accident Friday morning has not yet been released.  State Troopers say the man stopped his dump truck on Interstate 59 northbound, at the exit 77 ramp in Tuscaloosa.  We're told he got out of the truck to check on something with the vehicle.  Apparently the dump truck started moving on its own, according to troopers, and rolled over the man.

The accident killed the man.  State Troopers are not releasing any further information at this time.  They are trying to contact the man's family.
