A collision between a pair of pickup trucks left two men dead Friday night along Highway 183, just north of Hays.
The Kansas Highway Patrol said in a crash report that Jesse D. Pfannenstiel, 40, failed to stop at a stop sign as he drove a 2002 Dodge pickup west on Feedlot Road, about three miles north of I-70. A second truck – a 2004 Dodge Ram – northbound on Highway 183 struck Pfannenstiel’s truck on the driver’s door, KHP said.
The crash killed Pfannenstiel, of Woodston, the report said, as well as 26-year-old Greensburg resident Justin Kennedy, who was a passenger in the second truck.
Two others in the second truck, a 24-year-old Garfield woman and a 3-year-old boy, were taken to Hays Medical Center after suffering possible injuries in the crash, KHP said. The wreck happened at 7:30 p.m.
