Independence Police say the man who was struck by a tractor trailer near Missouri 291 and Salisbury Road last Tuesday died the following day.

The victim has been identified as John C. Keeney. He was a 42-year-old resident of Independence. Keeney died from his injuries at Centerpoint Medical Center, according to Independence Police Sergeant John Passiglia.

As reported last week, Keeney was walking south along the edge of the M-291 roadway Tuesday morning when a tractor trailer struck him.

Passigilia says the crash is still under investigation.
