SPEARVILLE, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas woman is dead after a state trooper who was responding to an accident lost control of his patrol car and slammed into her vehicle.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports 24-year-old trooper Dillon Keller of Dodge City was eastbound on U.S. 50 near Spearville at 7:07 a.m. Tuesday when a truck pulled onto the highway from a truck stop.

Keller drove onto the shoulder and braked hard before coming back onto the highway, crossing into the westbound lanes and striking a car driven by 59-year-old Lucinda Lampe of Offerle, who had moved to the westbound shoulder.

Lampe’s vehicle then struck a third car that was stopped behind her.

Lampe was killed in the crash. Keller was taken to a Dodge City hospital, where he was treated and released.
