Man Found Dead In Truck Near Moxee

A man is found dead in his truck this afternoon near Moxee.

Washington State Patrol say a passing motorist spotted a white pickup truck at the bottom of a 30-foot canal near the 1600 block of Walters Road.

Troopers found the body of 59-year old Dennis Weaver of Union Gap.

Troopers say Weaver's car had left the road and flipped several times down into the embankment.

Officers say Weaver appeared to not be wearing a seatbelt, which was a factor in his death.

Troopers say it is unclear how long the car had been there, and are determining whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
