The driver of a tractor-trailer was killed today when his rig slammed into an overpass support beam at U.S. 50 and K-96 just south of Hutchinson.
The semi was eastbound when it ran off the road about 12:30 p.m., Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson said. He said the man died at the scene.
The victim was identified by the Kansas Highway Patrol as Michael J. Rice, 41, of Canyon, Texas.
