Nebraska man dies after semi truck smashes into his pickup
ATWOOD, KS - Investigators say a cornfield blocked a driver's view before he pulled out in front of an oncoming semitrailer truck and caused a fatal crash.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says a Nebraska man died in the crash in northwest Kansas around midday Saturday.
The Patrol says 50-year-old Derrick Bassnett of Trenton, Nebraska, died in the crash.
Bassnett pulled into the intersection of two county roads, and the semi smashed into the passenger side of his pickup truck.
The 29-year-old driver of the semi from Colby, Kansas, wasn't hurt.
