March 17, 2012


— Two men from Louisiana and one person from Kansas have been killed in a crash in central Kansas’ Barton County.

The Hutchinson News reported that 23-year-old Ronald Firmin, of Zachary, La., was headed southbound on U.S. 281 Friday when he failed to stop at an intersection about three miles west of Hoisington.

Barton County Sheriff Greg Armstrong said Firmin drove into the left side of a large truck that was headed eastbound on Kansas 4. Both vehicles went off the side of the highway and came to rest in a ditch.

Firmin was killed along with his passengers, 38-year-old Zulet Rodrigues-Harp, of Great Bend, and 29-year-old Jeremy LeJune, also of Zachary, La.
