According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, 51-year-old Kevin Dettmer from Randolph was driving a 2006 Dodge Durango SUV. As he was headed east on a rural road he swerved to avoid a cardboard box. Dettmer then over-corrected, struck a bridge pillar. The SUV came to rest under under the bridge.

  • 39-year-old Kyra Dettmer
  • 11-year-old Kaghen Dettmer
  • 8-year-old Kinsley Dettmer
