An Arkansas City man is dead after being involved in a Wednesday morning crash in Kiowa County that involved two tractor trailers. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, 38 year old Justin Wise was one of three people killed when one of the semis crossed the center land and slammed into another head on. Police say Wise was pulling an empty cattle trailer east on US 54 Highway, when a westbound rig, driven by 55 year old Gary Heald of Minnesota, swerved directly into the path of Wise. Heald also died, and a passenger in Heald’s rig, 56 year old Cheryl Thomas… also of Minnesota, was killed. All three were pronounced dead at the scene. Both trucks caught fire. Heald’s truck was carrying pork products, which were left scattered across the highway.
