A 22-year-old Sabetha man was killed in a head-on collision on U.S. Highway 36 in Doniphan County Thursday night.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports that the crash happened at around 10 p.m. when a Ram 1500 pickup — driven by Isaiah Creek — collided head on with a semi-truck. According to the crash report, Creek was traveling eastbound in the westbound lane when he collided with the semi. The crash occurred less than a half mile west of Half Mound road, in western Doniphan County.

Creek was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the semi-truck — Michael Roskelley, 52, of Neosho, Mo., — sustained minor injuries.

As of early Friday morning, Highway 36 remained closed as crews worked to clean up the crash. KHP said the semi-truck was carrying food and that it spread over the road after the crash, which remains under investigation.
