GRANT COUNTY, Kan. (KWCH) - The Kansas Highway Patrol has identified two people killed during multiple crashes in Grant County last Wednesday.

Then, a Peterbilt semi was traveling east on US 160 entered the crash scene and collided with the vehicles including a fire truck and ambulance that were responding to the initial crashes.

Two men were killed, Thomas Peterson, 55, of Cimarron, and 78-year-old Doyle E. Kauk, of Hoxie.

KHP said the high winds created reduced visibilities which contributed to the crashes, including the one that turned deadly.
