Road Construction Worker Killed in Reno County

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2014

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a construction worker died after being hit by a trash truck in Reno County.

The accident Tuesday on Kansas 61 killed 22-year-old Dylan Joseph Snyder of Kansas City, Missouri. Snyder was removing construction cones when he was hit.

The patrol says before the truck hit Snyder, it rear-ended one vehicle and sideswiped two others that had stopped for the construction. Snyder and two others were sent to hospitals.

The Hutchinson News reports that at the time of the accident, three vehicles, including two road construction vehicles, were stopped in the highway’s northbound lane while the traffic cones and signs were being picked up.

The driver of the trash truck was not seriously injured.
