WALDEN — A man driving a Toyota pickup appears to have suffered a medical event before veering off Rt. 15 late Tuesday afternoon. The pickup came to rest in the snow-covered property at 5933 Rt. 15 about 30 yards off the road. Near it was a tractor that had been driven there to help get the truck back onto the road. Behind the tractor and shielded from motorists passing on Rt. 15 were medical personnel from Hardwick Rescue Squad trying to revive the man through CPR. Attempts to resuscitate the man were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:32 p.m. State police were on the scene investigating. It is believed to be an untimely death caused by a medical event unrelated to the vehicle’s operation. Authorities had not released the name of the man.
