SUBLETTE, Kan. (AP) -- A stranded motorist has been killed in southwest Kansas after a driver headed to the scene to help crashed into the disabled vehicle.

The Kansas Highway Patrol has identified the victim as 24-year-old Nicholas Eugene Chaffin of Sublette. The accident happened around 2 a.m. Sunday about five miles northwest of Sublette in Haskell County.

The patrol says Chaffin's 1973 vehicle was "broken down and blacked out" in the middle of the road. The pickup truck driver who was trying to help was taken to a hospital with a possible injury.
