The man who was killed in a one-car crash Wednesday morning north of Wichita has been identified as a rural Valley Center man.
Patrick Raines, 31, was driving east on 101st Street North when his SUV drifted off the road and rolled in the ditch between Woodlawn and Rock Road, authorities said. He was thrown from the car and landed in a small creek filled with a few inches of water.
The car continued to roll and came to a stop on the edge of the creek, authorities said. The crash was called in by a passer-by at 6:36 a.m.
Raines was pronounced dead at the scene.
