Woman Killed in Three-Vehicle Crash Involving State Trooper
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Kansas woman is dead after a fatal
auto crash involving a state trooper this past Tuesday. According to the Kansas Highway
Patrol, a state trooper was responding to an accident and lost control
of his patrol car, slamming into another vehicle near Spearville. The
24-year-old trooper was traveling eastbound on U.S. 50 at approximately
7:07 a.m. when a tractor-trailer pulled out of a truck stop onto the highway.
The trooper veered onto the shoulder while braking hard to avoid colliding
with the tractor-trailer. The trooper then attempted to come back into
the lane but lost control of his vehicle and drove into the westbound
lanes, striking the 59-year-old woman’s car. The woman then struck
the third car behind her. The woman was killed instantly. The trooper
was taken to a Dodge City hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
The multiple vehicular accident is still under police investigation, and
it is unclear if any charges will be filed.
