Pratt Tribune – September 20, 2018

According the Kansas Highway Patrol online crash long, 74-year-old Darrel Brant, of Isabel, was injured in the wreck that shut down U.S. Highway 54 for several hours on Wednesday. Friends and co-workers at Hamm Auction and Real Estate confirmed that Brant passed away as a result of his injuries later Wednesday afternoon.

An Isabel man, 74-year-old Darrel Brant, died from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle accident east of Pratt at 9:25 a.m. on Wednesday morning.
Brant was northbound on Northeast 100th Avenue in a 2005 white Chevrolet Silverado 1500. At the intersection of U.S. Highway 54 and NE 100th Avenue, Brant failed to yield to a westbound 2015 red Ford pickup towing a camper on U.S. Highway 54, driven by 72-year-old Dan Hoeper of Livingston, Texas, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol online crash log.
The Silverado hit the rear drivers-side panel of the Ford causing severe damage to both vehicles and demolishing the trailer. The Ford and the remains of the trailer came to rest on the north shoulder of U.S. Highway 54 while the Silverado stopped facing southwest on the westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 54 in the north lane.
Pratt County EMS transported Brant to Pratt Regional Medical Center. He was not wearing a seat belt.
Hoeper and his passenger 69-year-old Katherine Hoeper, also of Livingston, Texas were listed as not injured. Both were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
Westbound traffic was rerouted north on NE 100th Avenue through Cairo until the accident scene had been processed several hours later.
