CIMARRON, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a motorist has slammed into and killed two people as they stood on the shoulder of a southwest Kansas highway.

The Kansas Highway Patrol identified the victims as 27-year-old Christopher Louis Conrardy, of Cimarron, and 50-year-old Chris Alan Hamilton, of Garden City.

The men were standing on the shoulder of U.S. 50 on Thursday after Conrardy’s westbound pickup truck went left of center and struck the fourth and fifth axles of Hamilton’s eastbound tractor-trailer. Conrardy’s truck spun out and came to a stop in the westbound lane about five miles east of Cimarron.

The patrol says the driver of another pickup truck tried to avoid Conrardy’s vehicle and drove onto the shoulder, hitting the two men. The surviving driver was taken to a Dodge City hospital.
