Lenexa Man Dies In One Car Rollover

A Lenexa man is dead after a one vehicle accident in Jefferson county Monday afternoon.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said that 71 year old Ronald Heugel was traveling west on Highway 24 Monday around 3 o'clock when the accident happened.

Reports say that he drifted off the road, and then over corrected, causing his van to slide across the highway and into the south ditch where it rolled several times.

Heugel was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials say he was the only occupant in the car and was wearing his seatbelt.
