Two people were killed in a single vehicle rollover crash in Northeast Kansas late Saturday night.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck was headed north on K 237 Highway in Jefferson County.  The driver, identified as 43-year-old John Lewis from Ozawkie, failed to negotiate a curve. The truck left the road and overturned several times, coming to rest on the driver’s side.

Lewis and one passenger, 20-year-old Gavin Lewis from Nortonville, both suffered suspected serious injuries and were transported to a hospital in Topeka.

Two other passengers in the truck were killed. They are identified as:

  • 46-year-old Christopher Webb from Topeka
  • 21-year-old Luke Puccinelli from Ozawkie

The patrol says John Lewis was the only one buckled up.

The crash happened Saturday night at around 10:30 in Jefferson County,  on K 237 Highway about four miles north of U.S. 24 Highway.
