Mayetta man struck, killed trying to walk across I-70
MANHATTAN — Authorities say a 21-year-old Kansas man died while trying to walk across Interstate 70 overnight.
The crash east of Manhattan forced the closure of I-70 for a couple hours after it happened shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says Matthew Bailey, of Mayetta, died after he was struck by an eastbound Jeep Wrangler driven by a 23-year-old man.
The Jeep’s driver and passenger were not hurt.
