Sheriff’s office IDs rollover wreck victim

July 17, 2007


The Franklin County Sheriff's Office has identified a 36-year-old rural Pomona resident as the man who died in a Sunday morning wreck on a county road five miles west of Ottawa.

Sheriff Craig Davis said Monday that Michael J. Kiefer died in the wreck on Idaho Road about half a mile south of Kansas Highway 68.

According to Davis, about 6 a.m. Sunday, Kiefer apparently drove a 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck around a barricade on the flood-damaged road. The northbound truck struck a hole in the road, causing a tire to blow out.

Kiefer was not wearing a seat belt, and he was thrown from the vehicle as it rolled several times. He died at the scene and was the only person in the vehicle.
