No wrongdoing on part of motorist

by Valerie Verkamp
Landmark reporter

A 34-year old man was struck and killed crossing the southbound lanes of Interstate 635 early Friday.

Christopher E. Richman of Bonner Springs, Kan. attempted to cross I-635 near Argosy Casino at 3:50 a.m. Friday morning. As he crossed the four-lane highway, he was struck by a vehicle in the southbound lanes driven by 45-year-old Brandon D. Shiveley of Kansas City.

Shiveley's 2000 Chevrolet smashed into the pedestrian at a high rate of speed near mile marker 10.8.

The vehicle sustained moderate damage and was towed by AllStar Tow.

Richman died at the scene of the accident. He was officially pronounced dead at 4:23 a.m. by Jackson County Medical Examiner Jason Horner.

Riverside Police Department and the Platte County Sheriff's Office assisted the Missouri Highway Patrol with the investigation.
