DRAKE -- Authorities have identified the driver of a semi truck from a hit-and-run crash that killed a Texas man July 2 at a highway intersection in rural McHenry County.
After investigating several leads, the North Dakota Highway Patrol and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office identified the striking vehicle and driver, 54-year-old David Kinney of Cheyenne, Wyo., according to a news release.
Kinney was driving a 2007 Volvo semi truck pulling a trailer containing fracking sand when he struck Carlos Price, 51, of Houston, at U.S. Highway 52 and state Highway 14 about two miles west of Drake.
Price was walking along the highway after the vehicle he was in went off the road and became submerged in water, according to the patrol.
The case has been forwarded to the McHenry County state’s attorney for review.
