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:
