EUDORA, Kan. (WIBW) - A crossover crash early Thursday on K-10 highway in Douglas County claimed the life of one person and sent another person to the hospital, authorities told 13 NEWS.

The crash was reported around 4 a.m. Thursday on westbound K-10 highway near the Church Street exit in Eudora.

Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Tiffany Bush said the crash occurred when an eastbound semi crossed the median for an unknown reason and struck a westbound passenger car.

23-year-old Robert Walston Jr., who was driving the car, died in the crash. The semi driver, 54-year-old Eric Burge of Kansas City, Missouri, was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.
