I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for all of the emergency responders and KDOT who assisted with the fatality crash on 75 highway yesterday afternoon. (03-16-2016) Our thoughts and prayers also go out to the family of the victim of the crash.

It is very comforting to know that when these unfortunate accidents happen, we have a dedicated group of emergency responders not only in Brown County, but neighboring counties as well who will come to our assistance any time when needed. Such was the case yesterday.

When a commercial vehicle (semi) is involved in a serious injury or fatality accident, the CHART team from KHP is called in to map the accident. They have very specialized training in accident investigation which is crucial on any accident involving a fatality.
US 75 HWY was shut down from the US 36 junction to 260th from approximately 3:10 p.m. to approximately 2:30 a.m.
