CHAPMAN (KSNT) – A deadly crash Thursday shut down a stretch of I-70 in Dickinson County, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
KHP identified the person who died as Ryan Pack, 34, of Abilene.
Troopers said they first learned of the crash around 1:15 p.m., and KHP sent its Critical Highway Accident Response Team to the area between exits 295 and 275. Emergency crews had all traffic take a detour north to Kansas Highway 18.
A photo tweeted by the Kansas Highway Patrol showed a vehicle on fire on the side of the road. The car had a smoke plume rising high into the air.
KHP said Pack was headed east when he crossed the center line and hit a westbound vehicle.
It was unknown if Pack was wearing a seatbelt or not, according to KHP.
