JOYCE — Michael R. Jones, 66, of Port Angeles died Wednesday afternoon on state Highway 112 after he became ill and stopped the car in the roadway, where paramedics tried unsuccessfully to revive him, the State Patrol said.

It is believed that Jones suffered a heart attack, said State Patrol spokesman Trooper Russ Winger.

Highway 112 near Joyce was blocked in both directions from about 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. while paramedics with Clallam County Fire District No. 4 tried to save Jones, Winger said.

The State Patrol received reports of a car driving erratically on Highway 112 at about 4:30 p.m.

Winger said Jones, who was believed to have been driving alone, pulled over on his own.

There was no crash, Winger said.

“Fire[fighters] responded and [were] at the scene performing medical emergency CPR. They were unable to revive him,” he said.
