Associated Press - November 5, 2016 3:33 pm

Authorities are investigating after a Topeka police car was involved in a fatal accident with another car.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a Junction City man has died after being struck while trying to change a tire on Interstate 70.

The patrol says 29-year-old Anthony Espinosa died after he was hit late Friday on the interstate.

The patrol says Espinosa was working on the disabled vehicle on the inside shoulder of I-70’s westbound lanes in the Silver Lake area when he was hit. Another man helping him was unhurt.

The Topeka Capital Journal reports (http://j.mp/2fqhnaQ) that the driver of a pickup that hit the victim fled the scene.
