The 26-year-old Wichita man who died in a one-car accident on Sunday was the manager of Emerson Biggins West.

Luis Beltran Lopez III was killed in the one car accident at Kellogg and I-235, which happened about 2 a.m. on Sunday.

Lopez was driving a 2007 Mercury Mountaineer that was going east on Kellogg. As his SUV took the ramp to southbound I-235, it left the road and went into the ditch, rolling several times and crossing both lanes of I-235. Lopez was ejected from the car, the police report from the accident said.

On Monday, Lopez’s Facebook page was filled with condolences from co-workers and friends.

He was the son of Luis Lopez, who also owns the Old Town Emerson Biggins. The senior Lopez also owned Wichita’s two Brews Brothers Ice House Bar and Grill when they operated.

Funeral arrangements are pending at Downing & Lahey West.
