Michael Heim Killed, Jacob Rives, Shane Edenfeld Injured in Pawnee County, KS, Accident

Pawnee County, KS -- June 7, 2017, Michael Heim was killed, Jacob Rives and Shane Edenfeld were injured, following an accident involving an 18-wheeler.

Authorities from the Kansas State Highway Patrol responded to the emergency call at around 7:00 a.m. They say the crash happened along State Highway 156 just west of the town of Rozel.

Preliminary accident reports indicate that 16-year-old Rives was traveling westbound along the highway. Behind him was 38-year-old Heim in a separate vehicle. Police claim that Rives's vehicle somehow crossed paths with an oncoming 18-wheeler driven by 48-year-old Edenfeld.

The two vehicles collided, and the 18-wheeler swerved into eastbound lanes after the collision. This caused the 18-wheeler to swerve into eastbound lanes and crash head-on into Heim's vehicle.

Emergency services came to the scene to render aid, but they say that Heim died in the crash. Edenfeld and Rivers were taken to Wesley Medical Center and Pawnee Valley Community Hospital respectively. Their exact injuries weren't specified.

The factors surrounding the crash are still under investigation.
