A 27-year-old Ness City man was killed in a one-vehicle accident near Kansas Highway 96 in rural Ness County on Wednesday night.
Travis Lee Smith lost control of his vehicle while traveling south on X Road, less than half a mile north of the highway. His 2001 Dodge Stratus hit an embankment, causing the vehicle to roll. He was ejected from his seat, according to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol.
The vehicle came to rest on its wheels facing northeast in a field. Smith’s body was taken to a local mortuary.
He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the report.
