The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal collision in Kiowa County just west of Greensburg that occurred early Wednesday morning.

Authorities aren’t sure when the collision at the intersection of U.S. 54 and U.S. 183 occurred, a highway patrol dispatcher said, but someone called 911 at about 3:45 a.m.

Reports indicate two people from Oklahoma died in the collision, according to the Kiowa County sheriff. A man driving a Fed Ex truck was treated and released from the hospital.

All the boxes in the truck fell out of the truck and are scattered around the area.

At noon Wednesday, several troopers and law enforcement still were working the scene of the collision, though both U.S. 54 and U.S. 183 are open for traffic.
