GRINNELL, Kan. (AP) – A 67-year-old Colorado man has died in a truck accident on Interstate 70 in western Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Donald E. Jones, of Broomfield, Colorado, lost control of his semi tractor-trailer a couple miles east of Grinnell early Saturday. The truck entered the median and rolled on its side, pinning Jones.

The patrol says Jones wasn’t wearing a seat belt.

    Sad. Fell asleep at the wheel? (Would probably happen to me after long hours.)
    But I wear seat-belts. Always.
    He would probably be alive if wearing seat-belts. Most truckers always do.
