Firefighter killed in accident

KAKE – March 29, 2017

One driver was killed and another injured Wednesday when a pickup truck and car collided in Gray County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports Richard Hixon of Ensign, 27, was driving east on U.S. 56 toward Ensign around 11:45 a.m. The pickup entered his lane while attempting to pass a tractor-trailer three miles west of town. The vehicles may have hit head-on.

Hixon was declared dead at Western Plains Medical Complex in Dodge City. The pickup driver from Satanta also was taken there with critical injuries. Three other people in the pickup, including two small children, were not injured.

    Such an unnecessary accident…that could
    Have been prevented if people would just slow down and stop being impatient on the road. It took a father,son and a best friend of a lot of people. God bless the families!!
