DIGHTON, Kansas – A man from Hays was killed in a one-vehicle crash involving a semi Wednesday afternoon.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers report the crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. on K-4 Highway, about 13 miles northeast of Dighton.

A 2013 Kenworth semi pulling a trailer was westbound on K-4 when it left the highway to the right for an unknown reason.

The vehicle went down an embankment and rolled once. The driver was ejected and pinned beneath the trailer and died as a result of the crash.

Troopers say the driver, 40-year-old Rodney Carroll of Hays, was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
