HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A 20-year-old man has died after crashing a stolen Cox Communications truck into a bridge guard rail in southern Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1G9Qx1n ) reports the unidentified driver lost control of the vehicle early Monday and hit the guard rail before flipping over and going into Sand Creek. The Harvey County Sheriff’s Office says the driver died at the scene.

A Cox spokesman says video shows that the truck was stolen shortly before 4 a.m. Monday from a company parking lot in Hutchinson.

Authorities weren’t naming the driver until his family could be notified.

The sheriff’s office says the guard rail and part of the bridge will have to be repaired.
