A northwest Missouri man lost his life when the pickup he was driving went off Highway 169 in Buchanan County and struck a tree one-half mile south of St. Joseph.
Thirty-six-year-old Joshua Oliver of Agency was pronounced dead at Mosaic Life Care 45 minutes after the 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon wreck.
The pickup was northbound when it traveled off the highway, went airborne over an embankment, and struck a tree. The vehicle landed, started to skid and it overturned onto the driver’s side.
The patrol report noted Oliver was using a seat belt.
