A Blue Springs man has died in a wreck on U.S. 40. His car went off the road, became airborne and struck two trees.
It happened a little after 10 p.m. Friday. The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that Shaun M. Carnal, 39, was driving a 2004 Chevrolet. He was on U.S. 40, west of Woods Chapel Road in Blue Springs, and he was headed west.
He failed to negotiate a curve, the Highway Patrol said, and went off the road to the left. The vehicle hit a highway sign and two trees, and it came to rest against a tree.
