A driver was killed on the Iron Range when his dump truck crashed off the road and rolled.

The incident happened just before 1:30 p.m. Monday on Spirit Lake Road in Clinton Township, near the Virta Road West intersection.

The driver was heading north when his vehicle left the road to the east and rolled over.

The driver, the only person in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.

He hasn't been named yet, but the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says he's a 38-year-old man.

His identity will be released after his family has been notified.
