ULYSSES, Kan. (AP) A southwest Kansas man killed in a rollover accident has been identified as a longtime employee of the state transportation department.
KAKE-TV reports that 43-year-old Jeffery Harris, of Hugoton, suffered fatal injuries in the crash Monday about 11 miles south of Ulysses.
The Highway Patrol says Harris was driving a Kansas Department of Transportation tractor-trailer when it veered off Kansas 25, overcorrected and rolled over in a ditch. He later died at a Wichita hospital.
KDOT says Harris was a 14-year agency employee. He worked as a senior equipment operator out of the Hugoton office.
