Kansas Firefighter Killed while Truck was Headed to a Parade

KSAL StaffJuly 28, 2016
The Kansas Highway Patrol says four people who died Tuesday in an accident in Ellsworth County were from Colorado.

Authorities say a northeast Kansas firefighter has died after a fire truck overturned while it was headed to a parade.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened Wednesday east of the Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation Reservation. The patrol says Hoyt firefighter Michael Schultz, of Hoyt, was driving northbound on U.S. 75 when the truck blew a tire near Mayetta.

The truck veered off the highway to the left, crossed the median that divides the northbound lanes from the southbound lanes, crossed over the southbound lanes, struck an embankment and overturned.

The patrol says the 47-year-old Schultz was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The patrol says a second firefighter was injured.
