A 34-year-old Lawrence man was killed early Sunday after a single-vehicle accident north of Midland Junction.
David Leroy Smart was driving northbound near the 2000 block of County Road 1045 about 2:10 a.m. when his 1997 Chevrolet truck drifted into a ditch and struck a culvert, said Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Steve Lewis.
Emergency crews responded to the crash about 2:30 a.m. Smart, the only occupant, was extricated from the truck at 3:17 a.m. and was then transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
Lewis said emergency room staff pronounced Smart dead at 3:52 a.m.
