DESOTO, Kansas (AP) – Two people are dead after an early morning crash on Kansas 10 after the driver of a pickup truck crossed the median and plowed into an oncoming car.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the pickup driver was a 45-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man who lost control of his westbound vehicle around 1:20 a.m. Thursday and collided with an eastbound Toyota Camry driven by a 20-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene. Trooper Howard Dickinson says the pickup driver was ejected from his vehicle, while the Camry driver was wearing a seatbelt and had to be cut out.
Dickenson says the crash was not survivable because of the force of two vehicles traveling at 70 mph and crashing into each other.
