Fatal Turnpike crash under investigation

The Kansas Turnpike Authority says an elderly man died in a crash at the Matfield Green service area on Tuesday night.

The accident happened around 9 pm. John Armintrout, age 65 of Bee Branch, Ark., was killed when his pickup hit a pole and then rear-ended a semi. Investigators believe a medical condition may have triggered the fatal chain of events, but the KTA's crash log does not specify a cause.

The semi driver was in his vehicle but was unhurt.
