A 55-year-old man had a medical emergency while driving in Kittitas County.

It happened just south of Ellensburg on I-82 Sunday evening.

Troopers say Frederick Shultz was driving north when, for reasons unknown, he suffered a medical episode – causing him to veer 100 feet off the roadway, and into a fence.

Shultz was pronounced dead.

It’s not known if drugs or alcohol played a factor.
