Dust Blamed For Fatal Crash

KSAL StaffApril 29, 2014

The Kansas Highway Patrol says blowing dust caused an accident that killed a man in central Kansas.

Thirty-year-old Brandon H. Stein of Great Bend died Monday afternoon in an accident on U.S. 56 about seven miles west of Great Bend.

The patrol says Stein’s vehicle collided with the trailer of a semi-trailer truck that had stopped in the eastbound lanes of the highway because of visibility problems caused by the dust and other accidents.

First responders reported zero visibility when they tried to reach the accident, prompting authorities to close the highway from Great Bend to Pawnee Rock.
