A 46-year-old truck driver from Everest, Kan., has been identified as the man who died after a wreck Tuesday on Missouri 45 in northern Platte County.
The Platte County Sheriff’s Office identified the man as Michael S. Cunningham.
Cunningham had been driving a 2005 Peterbilt semi-trailer truck northbound on Missouri 45 near Iatan Road when the truck left the road, slid down the highway’s west embankment and hit a tree. Cunningham was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The sheriff’s office is investigating the crash.
