ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Police have identified the man struck and killed Wednesday evening just south of downtown.
67-year-old Moustafa Elmansy of St. Louis was helping a friend who had pulled over to the left shoulder of southbound I-55 at Sidney after running out of gas around 6:30 p.m.
Police say a tractor-trailer “veered” toward the shoulder and struck Elmansy, pulling him underneath the truck.
Elmansy was dead at the scene.
