Larned, KS (May 1, 2024) – A man was seriously hurt in a multi-vehicle crash in the Larned area on Monday, April 29. The accident was reported on K-156 near K-246 at around 12:01 p.m. Local reports revealed that a 2012 Cadillac SRX was heading eastbound on the highway when it attempted to pass a 2007 International semi-trailer. 

It was then that the driver of the Cadillac sideswiped a westbound 2011 Kenworth semi-trailer. The impact caused the SRX to hit the semi-trailer it was trying to pass. The driver of the Cadillac, later identified as 39-year-old Morgan Williams of Wichita, was transported by ambulance to Pawnee County Hospital in serious condition. 

Neither of the truck drivers involved, identified as 33-year-old Bradley J. Walker of Wichita and 38-year-old Jared D. Kirchgassner of McLouth, were injured in the accident.
