A semi-truck driver involved in a crash south of Augusta on Sept. 8 died of hypertensive cardiovascular disease, officials reported. 

Lewis and Clark County Sheriff and Coroner Leo Dutton released the cause of death for 60-year-old Michael Engel of Missoula on Monday. 

Dutton said officials believe Engel died before the truck he was driving went off Highway 200 and into a nearby field around 7:50 a.m. Sept. 8 about 4 miles west of the Cascade County line. Dutton said Engel did not sustain any substantial injuries in the crash itself. 

According to Dutton, Engel's next of kin have been notified.

Montana Highway Patrol assisted in the investigation of this incident. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
