An area high school coach died in a four-vehicle pile-up last night on I-29 near Camden Point, Missouri.  Nathan Danneman, 37, had coached football and wrestling at West Platte High School for four years.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said a tractor-trailer crossed the median and struck three other vehicles. Drivers of the tractor-trailer and one of the other vehicles were taken to hospitals.

Danneman's 3-year-old daughter was in the car and was taken to Children's Mercy Hospital. More than $15,000 has already been raised in a GoFundMe account for his family

The school district released this statement on its Facebook page:

"Last night, the West Platte family lost a dear member. Nathan Danneman will always be known as a positive and hard-working role model for our kids and staff. He will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathies go out to Coach Danneman's family during this time of grief."
