A tractor-trailer driver was found dead Friday at the northbound Interstate 95 rest area just north of County Road 210 in St. Johns County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Troopers said they were called about 9:20 a.m. to conduct a wellness check on a commercial motor vehicle driver parked at the rest area. They said the driver and sole occupant of the tractor-trailer — a 50-year-old man from Darlington, South Carolina — was found dead in the sleeper area of the vehicle.

The Highway Patrol said foul play is not suspected at this time, but the investigation continues.
