Troopers identify two men killed in K-10 crossover accident

Operation 100 News report.

Updated: 9:19 p.m..

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after two people were killed in a head-on accident on Kansas Highway 10 in De Soto.

The accident was reported shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday in the eastbound lanes of K-10, east of Kill Creek Road.

Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies arrived at the scene to report two vehicles with heavy damage.

Johnson County Med-Act reported two people dead at the scene.

Both eastbound lanes of the highway were closed, with traffic being diverted to Kill Creek Road. All lanes reopened to traffic at 6:15 a.m..

Troopers say, 45-year-old, Johnnie Royce Jackson of Kansas City, Missouri, was driving his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado westbound in the eastbound lanes of K-10 after crossing the grassy center median. The wrong way truck then crashed nearly head-on into an eastbound 2013 Toyota Avalon. The Toyota was being driven by, 20-year-old, Robert Anthony Zevenbergen of Kansas City, Kansas.

An accident report says Jackson was not wearing a seat-belt and was ejected from the truck. Zevenbergen was properly restrained and had to be extricated from his car.

Trooper Howard Dickinson says the crash was not survivable because of the force of two vehicles traveling at 70 mph and crashing into each other.

The Kansas Highway Patrol continues to investigate if alcohol played a role in the accident's cause.

The officer in pursuit reported that the driver signaled before he turned eastbound onto E. 23rd Street. The chase ended quickly when the driver pulled into his own driveway in the 1900 block of E. 23rd Street, with Police right behind him. Officers conducted a felony car stop and the man was taken into custody without further incident.

Douglas County booking logs show the driver to be a 33-year-old, Lawrence man. He now faces charges for OUI, attempt to elude, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
