Kansas Highway Patrol troopers investigate the scene of a fatal accident on westbound K-96 at Rock Road on Monday afternoon. Highway Patrol spokesman Gary Warner said a truck carrying Sheetrock lost some of its cargo on K-96 and cars were swerving to avoid it. A “good Samaritan,” said Warner, stopped to remove the Sheetrock from the road when a semi-truck driver swerved into the median to avoid colliding with a car in front of him. The semi struck the good Samaritan, killing him.
