MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Acquaintances of two elderly men who died in a traffic accident in northeastern Kansas say it happened as the friends were driving home from a daily visit to Tuttle Creek.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash late Tuesday afternoon killed 90-year-old Fred Danenberg and his 85-year-old passenger, Michael Myers. Investigators said Danenberg pulled out from a stop sign on U.S. 24 in Riley County into the path of a tractor-trailer, whose driver was unhurt.
The Manhattan Mercury reports Danenberg was the retired owner of a jewelry store in the city. Myers was a former auto dealer and farmer in the Marysville area.
The two retirees had made a daily habit for years of driving to Tuttle Creek to watch people fish, swim or camp at the reservoir.
