The Associated Press - April 17, 2017
FOWLER, Kan. — Authorities say three people were killed in a fiery four-vehicle crash that involved a camper-trailer becoming unhooked on a southwestern Kansas highway.
The Kansas Highway Patrol tells KAKE-TV that a pickup truck driver was exiting a bridge on U.S. 54 about 6:50 p.m. Friday near Fowler when his trailer somehow came loose and went across the highway.
A tractor-trailer driven by 43-year-old Zachery Duncan of Watertown, South Dakota, drove through the trailer, flattening a tire and causing his brakes to lock. The patrol says that semi then went across the highway and hit another tractor-trailer driven by 56-year-old John Kemp Jr. of Brandon, Mississippi.
Troopers say both big rigs caught fire.
Both truckers were killed along with a passenger in Duncan's rig — 35-year-old Manda Price of Watertown.
