CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — The Linn County Sheriff's Office says a truck driver died after losing control of a semitrailer truck on a highway ramp.

The accident happened about 1 a.m. Sunday when the truck was moving from southbound Iowa Highway 13 to eastbound U.S. Highway 30.

The driver lost control, and the truck slid through the guardrail and into a ditch, overturning several times.

The driver died at the scene.

The Sheriff's Office was withholding the driver's name until relatives could be notified.
