Police identify man struck, killed Saturday night in Springfield

 

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A man was killed Saturday night around after getting hit by a tow truck driver in north Springfield.

 

Police say Matthew Canovi, a 63-year-old resident of Brighton, Missouri, died at the scene as a result of the crash.

 

The crash happened around 9:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 65 Northbound and Chestnut Expressway.

 

Springfield police tell KY3 News that a driver called for help, the tow truck responded and while on scene, there was a "terrible accident," and the tow truck driver ended up running over someone.

 

Police say an Affordable Towing tow truck, driven by 29-year-old Alan Goodkin of Springfield, was on the northbound shoulder of U.S. Highway 65, just north of the Chestnut Expressway overpass.

 

As Goodkin began to reverse the tow truck to load another car, Canovi was standing on the shoulder of US Highway 65 and struck.

 

Police say impairment does not seem to be a factor. This is the fifth fatality motor vehicle crash in Springfield in 2020.

 

Next of kin have been notified. Officers continue to investigate the crash.
