BONNER SPRINGS, Kan. -- A driver was killed in a two-car crash early Monday in the southbound lane of K-7 near Nettleton Avenue.

The driver of that truck, identified as Terry Kaiser, 52, of Shawnee, died when he was thrown from the truck. The other driver was taken to the hospital. There were no additional passengers in either vehicle.
The southbound lanes of K-7 were closed for nearly four hours while law enforcement conducted their investigation.
