Semi driver killed by smoke from Kansas wildfire

KWCH – March 7, 2017

A semi driver has died after he jack-knifed his semi and was overcome by smoke from the wildfires.

It happened at around 5:30 Monday evening.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 39-year-old Corey Holt of Oklahoma City was headed north on K-34 in Clark County and tried to back up due to poor visibility and dust from the wildfires.

His semi went off the roadway, jack-knifed, and became stuck.

Troopers say Holt got out of the truck and was overcome by the smoke from the wildfires.

No one else was hurt.
