A commercial tractor-trailer driver was hospitalized Wednesday morning after the truck drifted out of its lane on Interstate 84 near Vista, hitting the concrete median and two traffic signs.

The driver, whose identity ISP had not confirmed by Wednesday evening, had no pulse when witnesses arrived on the scene and found him between the driver and passenger seats, state police report. He was revived and taken by ambulance to St. Luke's Regional Medical Center, where his condition was not available Wednesday night. Investigators say a medical condition may have caused the crash.
