A man is dead as a result of a crash on Missouri 45 near Iatan Road in northern Platte County.
The Platte County Sheriff’s Office said a 46-year-old male, the driver of a 2005 Peterbilt semi-trailer truck, was taken to Mosaic Hospital and died shortly afterward.
The sheriff’s office believed the truck was traveling northbound on Missouri 45 near Iatan Road when it went off the west side of the road. The vehicle went down the highway’s west embankment and hit a tree.
Deputies did not release the man’s name because his family had not been contacted.
The cause of the crash was unknown. The investigation continued.
