Three killed in four-vehicle Meade County crash

KAKE – April 17, 2017

Three people from Mississippi and South Dakota are dead after a camper-trailer became unhooked and four vehicles collided in Meade County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports a pickup truck driver from Missouri was exiting a bridge on U.S. 54 about 6:50 p.m. Friday one mile west of Fowler. His trailer somehow unfastened and went across the highway. A semi driven by Zachery Duncan of Watertown, South Dakota, 43, drove through the trailer, flattening a tire and causing his brakes to lock.

Duncan’s semi went across the highway and hit another semi driven by John Kemp Jr. of Brandon, Mississippi, 56. Troopers say both big rigs caught fire. Both semi drivers were killed, as was Manda Price of Watertown, 35, who was riding with Duncan. Their cab wound up disconnected from their trailer, landing in the bottom of a creek.

A fourth vehicle became involved when the camper-trailer rolled into a ditch, hitting a car which apparently was parked there. The driver of that car and the pickup truck which started the crash were not hurt.
