Pair Killed In Truck-Semi Crash ID'd

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Highway Patrol says the two people killed in the crash of a pickup truck and a semi southwest of Wichita were Oklahomans.

The dead are identified as 51-year-old Richard Knapp and 54-year-old Cheryl McClellan, both of Alva, Okla. The crash occurred Wednesday on Highway K-42 in Sumner County.

Troopers said Knapp was driving the westbound pickup truck 2 miles east of Suppesville when it crossed the center line into the path of an oncoming 18-wheeler. The semi driver swerved to avoid the crash but was hit on the passenger side by the pickup.
