UPS driver died from heart attack before truck hit tree 

A man who was found lifeless and slumped over the steering wheel of a UPS truck he had apparently been driving early this morning in San Francisco did not die from a vehicle collision as initial reports indicated, San Francisco police Sgt. Steve Mannina said.

Authorities responded to witness reports of a man slouched in the driver's seat of a UPS truck at 15th and Utah streets at about 5 a.m., according to Mannina.

The man was dead when paramedics arrived, Mannina said.

The truck had rolled over a tree most likely after the driver's death, prompting suspicion that the truck had crashed and killed and driver, according to Mannina.

"It was not a collision," Mannina said. "We believe (the death) was medical."

The driver's identification has not been released because the family has not yet been notified, according to a spokeswoman for the San Francisco medical examiner's office.
