A 51-year-old man is dead after witnesses say he jumped from a moving semi-truck.

The Cambridge Post of the State Highway Patrol received a call around 10:10 last night that a man jumped from the passenger side of a vehicle.

They said he was lying on the side of the road on Interstate 70 Westbound near the Cambridge exit where Interstates 77 and 70 meet.

When authorities arrived on scene the man was pronounced dead by the Guernsey County Coroner.

The incident is still under investigation and we’ll have more details when they become available.
