Malcolm Jr. was driving a 2008 Western Star Tractor with a fuel tanker trailer west on SR-14 about 36 miles east of Goldendale. His truck apparently struck debris in the road, left the road to the south, rolled and caught fire.
Malcolm died in the crash, state patrol said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
