A Wheeling man died Friday, four days after his semitrailer truck rolled down an embankment in rural Maryland near the Pennsylvania border, police said Monday.

Victor Doros' vehicle veered off the two-lane roadway about 10:30 a.m. Sept. 24, and he was airlifted from scene in critical condition, said Maryland State Police.

Police said the semitrailer truck rolled about 360 feet down an embankment off the side of Interstate 68.

Doros was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead on Friday.

The semitrailer was the only vehicle involved in the crash, and police said it is likely they will never know what caused the vehicle, which was transporting onions, to veer off the roadway.
