Salina man killed when semi hits vehicle on highway

Salina Journal – July 16, 2018

A Salina man was killed late Friday afternoon when his car was struck by an out-of-control semitrailer on Interstate Highway 70, three miles east of Salina.

According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, a semi towing two trailers driven by Shane Edward Hale, 38, of Lenexa, was eastbound on I-70 at about 5:15 p.m. Friday when a strong gust of wind caused Hale to lose control. The semi jackknifed into the westbound lanes and struck a Subaru Legacy driven by Harry A. Taylor, 60, of Salina. Both vehicles came to rest on the north shoulder of the highway.

Taylor was pronounced dead at the crash site, according to the report. Hale and a passenger in the semi, Renita M. Hale, 37, also of Lenexa, were not injured.

Taylor and Shane Hale were wearing seat belts, while Renita Hale was not, according to the report.
