Good Samaritan from Byron trying to assist a tractor trailer stuck in the snow died in the effort.
Daniel Culver was 48 years old.
At about 1:30 yesterday afternoon multiple calls were placed to 911 dispatch centers in Wyoming County about a man down who was bleeding with CPR in process. It occurred on Peoria Road in the Town of Covington.
Initial reports indicated Mr. Culver stopped to assist the lost truck driver back up the tractor trailer. Authorities say Mr. Culver "possibly" had a medical incident while he was helping. The report says he fell face-first while in the roadway and died shortly thereafter.
The investigation is ongoing by the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Office. Weather conditions at the time were poor with snowy and icy roads.
