Cheney man identified as crash victim

WICHITA - A Cheney man who died Monday night in a crash on west U.S. 54 has been identified by the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Ronald Hodge, 59, was driving a Porsche westbound on 54 just past 263rd Street West between Goddard and Garden Plain when he crashed.

Authorities said the sports car was speeding when it tried to pass a Ford Explorer. The Porsche rear-ended the Explorer, then drove off the road. It flipped over several times and killed Hodge, according to the highway patrol.

Cindy Albert of Garden Plain, the driver of the Explorer, had possible injuries but wasn't taken to a hospital, the accident report said.
