MCPHERSON, Kansas – A tanker truck roll over Thursday south of McPherson claimed the life of a 48-year-old Hesston man.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a semi was southbound on K-153. The semi was traveling too fast to negotiate a curve in the roadway causing it to strike the median.
The vehicle rolled across the northbound lanes into the east ditch catching fire. Authorities identified the man driving the truck as 48-year-old John Douglas Schrock.
K-153 was shut down, and the road has since reopened after being damaged.
