One Found Dead on I-70 in Russell County

Fatal CrashShortly after 5 AM on Friday a deceased person was located on Interstate 70 in Russell County according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

KHP is investigating this incident as an apparent suicide after initially investigating it as a vehicle versus pedestrian fatal crash.

An unoccupied parked vehicle was on the shoulder and troopers believe they located what was originally believed to be a "leaving the scene" vehicle.

KHP has since determined this was not a hit and run crash as originally thought.

This is still developing as authorities continue to gather information.
