A crash on U.S. Highway 400 at Jade Road claims the life of a Fredonia man.

A 1994 Dodge Pickup driven by David L. Rasmussen Jr. attempted to to make a U-Turn when heading eastbound on U.S. Highway 400 at Jade Road, 1 mile southeast of Fredonia at approximately 1:32 P.M. on September 10th.

Rasmussen pulled to the side of the roadway to make a U-turn when a semi truck hit the driver’s side door of Rasmussen’s vehicle.

The Kansas State Highway Patrol says Rasmussen was killed.

The semi driver has no apparent injuries, according to the authorities.
