LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW)-- A Tuesday afternoon two car car crash on K10 Highway near Lawrence has killed a LeCompton man.

A 2002 Explorer driven by Marvin W. Buzzard, 67, of LeCompton, was traveling westbound on North 1800 Rd, a little after 2:00 p.m. drifted left of center, striking a 2001 Mack truck driven by Nathan Daniel Heinen, 32 of Valley Falls.

The Explorer came to rest in the middle of the roadway facing westbound, while Heinen's truck continued eastbound and came to rest on the south shoulder of the roadway.

Buzzard was reportedly not wearing his seatbelt, while Heinen was using his seatbelt and suffered no injuries.
