The Kansas Highway Patrol says blowing dust caused an 11-vehicle pileup that left three people dead in northwest Kansas.
The crash happened Thursday afternoon on Highway 83 near Rexford, in Thomas County. The patrol says seven tractor-trailer trucks and four passenger vehicles collided. The patrol says high winds and blowing dust reduced visibility to almost zero at the time of the crash.
The victims were identified as 51-year-old Leonard Scott Breeden of Colby; 57-year-old James Ocie Perrott of Perryton, Texas; and 66-year-old Jerold L. Lamb of Florissant, Colo.
The patrol did not release more details on the accident or information on injuries.
