The dump truck started to sway for an unknown reason, broke through the crash barriers and fell about six meters from the bridge, the police said.
The vehicle caught fire and burned out.
After that, the dead driver was found in the driver's cab, the spokesman said.
The accident happened on Wednesday between Völklingen and Wadgassen.
The A620 was closed in both directions around the accident site.
