Double Fatal Accident

LARNED, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Highway Patrol says two Nebraska men died in a two-vehicle wreck in south-central Kansas.

The patrol identified the victims of Tuesday’s accident in Pawnee County as Fidel Portillo-Moyao, 33, and Efrain Carrerea-Portillo, 23, both of Schuyler, Neb.

The patrol says a pickup truck driven by Portillo-Moyao crossed into the westbound lane of U.S. 56 and was hit by a semi-trailer truck. He died later at a hospital. Carrerea-Portillo died at the scene.

The driver of the semi-trailer was not injured.
