A 66-year-old Pittsburg, Kan., man died Monday in a single-vehicle crash in Cherokee County.
The Kansas Highway Patrol reports that Alfred E. Hubbard was southbound on K-7 about 2 1/2 miles south of Cherokee when he drove a Volvo truck straight off the west side of the road. He overcorrected, crossed both lanes of traffic and entered a ditch on the east side of the road, where the truck overturned, the highway patrol said.
Hubbard, the sole occupant of the truck, died from his injuries. The crash happened at 2 p.m., the highway patrol said.
