Weather Causes Three Traffic Deaths

KSAL StaffFebruary 5, 2014

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a fatal crash of two trucks on Interstate 135 in south-central Kansas appears to have been weather-related, making it the third fatality linked to a winter storm.

The patrol reported that a northbound Chevy truck went out of control Tuesday morning on I-135 just north of Hesston and spun through the median into the southbound lanes. Another Chevy truck struck it.

The driver of the first truck died Wednesday at a hospital. The patrol identified him as 58-year-old Richard Lynn Conquest of Moundridge.

Earlier, the patrol had reported that a weather-related, two-car crash Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 69 near Pittsburg left two people dead.

A winter storm hit Kansas on Tuesday, dumping heavy snow and making driving conditions hazardous.
