TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Shawnee Co. Sheriff’s Office has identified the man killed in a single vehicle accident last weekend in northern Shawnee Co.

The Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to the scene around 5:45 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17 and found Kruger’s vehicle on fire in the ditch. They say Kruger was driving west on NW 46th when, for an unknown reason, he drove off into the ditch.
