A Beloit man dies early Friday after a crash near Salina.
Our news partners at The Salina Journal report that 41-year-old James Nick died at a Salina Hospital after wrecking his truck. Sheriff Glen Kochanowski tells the Journal the crash happened around 2:30 a.m. On U.S. Highway 81 four miles north of Salina.
Investigators say Nick was driving north when he lost control of his pick-up. The truck crossed the road and rolled. Kochanowski did not know how fast the truck was going, but he said alcohol was a factor in the crash. Nick was not wearing a seat belt.
