A 31-year-old Missouri man has died after his SUV struck a semi head-on in Kingman County on Friday afternoon, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report.
Justin W. Adams, of Lees Summit, was driving a 2012 Jeep Liberty east on U.S. 54 when he failed to negotiate a curve eight miles west of Kingman. He crossed into incoming traffic about 3:40 p.m. Friday and struck a 2013 Peterbilt semi pulling a trailer, according to the highway patrol.
Adams was transported to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, where he later died, a house supervisor confirmed Saturday.
The driver of the semi, 51-year-old Lynn Andrews, and two passengers – Becky Andrews, 45, and Carolyn Meadows, 70 – were uninjured, the highway patrol reports. A fourth person in the semi, 71-year-old James Meadows, had possible injuries. All are Missouri residents.
