A 52-year-old former Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical firefighter died late Saturday after a one-vehicle accident near Turon, Reno County Sheriff’s Capt. Darrian Campbell said Tuesday.

Daniel Clouse, of Lawrence, was driving northbound on South Brownlee Road, about a mile south of Turon, around 11:30 p.m. Saturday when the accident occurred, Campbell said. Turon is about 70 miles west of Wichita.

Campbell said Clouse crossed the center line, then overcorrected and drove into a ditch, where the vehicle struck a power pole and flipped onto its top. Clouse was not wearing a seat belt, Campbell said.

Medics pronounced Clouse dead at the scene after first responders tried to extricate him from the vehicle, Campbell said.
