Tuesday Accident in Russell County Kills Hays Man

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a 29-year-old from Hays died Tuesday when the car he was driving ran off a roadway and rolled in Russell County.

Twenty-nine-year-old Dustin Lohrmeyer was headed south on a county road Tuesday night when the car went into the west ditch about 2 miles east of Russell.

The patrol says Lohrmeyer overcorrected and the car slid across both lanes into the east ditch, where it became airborne and rolled several times.

Lohrmeyer was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not buckled up.
