The Kansas Highway Patrol says Henry J. Hawkins, 66, of Homestead, Fla., was southbound on Interstate 135 at about 7 p.m. near Moundridge when he swerved to the left to avoid another vehicle that was overtaking him.
The front right tire on Hawkins' Ford pickup then went flat, and a car struck the rear left of Hawkins' truck. Hawkins' vehicle swerved and lost control, rolling into the median.
Hawkins was killed. He was not wearing a seat belt.
