A truck driver died following a crash on the Kansas Turnpike in Sumner County.
The Kansas Turnpike authority said the driver of the truck was going too fast as he exited Highway 166 to get onto Northbound I-35 and lost control, rolling the truck. It struck the barrier wall and came to rest on the driver's side.
Eugene Ewing III, 53, of Sand Springs, Okla. was pronounced dead at the scene.
One northbound lane of the Turnpike was closed this morning following the crash that occurred at 6 p.m. Monday.
