HOLTON, Kan. (AP) – Officials in northeastern Kansas say an attempt to pull a truck found dangling over a culvert ended with the vehicle flipping over and landing upside down in a full ditch, killing a man inside.

Station KSNT reports that the incident happened Friday night on state Highway 116 about four miles east of Holton.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says a passerby who came upon the stranded truck tried to get it back on the road when it flipped over into the ditch.

A woman in the truck was pulled to safety, but Morse says the man in the truck could not be saved. His name has not yet been released.
