Samaritan dies in I-29 accident

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

An effort by a Hollywood, Fla. man to play the role of good Samaritan ended in his death Saturday night on Interstate 29 about six miles north of Platte City.

Keivan Owji, 37, was pronounced dead at the scene after he was struck by a southbound vehicle driven by Donna M. Lucas, 60, of Kansas City, Ks., according to a report by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Owji stopped his car and got out to check on a previous accident when he was struck by Lucas' vehicle about 10:45 p.m. Saturday while he was in the left hand lane.

Troopers did not issue a citation to Lucas.
