    I would greatly appreciate if ppl would stop referencing gas prices. This is not funny. I am sure that this man was someone's child. I would hope that ppl wouldn't laugh at your memory when either one of you die!

    if they know the cause of death, and it is natural, why are they still investigating

    Poor guy. I feel for his family and wish them well

    At least he had the presence of mind to pull over when he started feeling ill, or this could have been an even greater tragedy.

    Awww! That happened to my great uncle. Was on the way to work, felt bad, pulled off the road into a wide spot and died. His co-workers went looking for him and found him there.

    Praying for this guy's loved ones.

    God bless.
