Man identified in deadly Shawnee County crash

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – One person is dead after a single-vehicle rollover in Shawnee County. The driver has been identified as Brent T. Warner, 47, from Hoyt Kansas.

The rollover happened around 8:20 p.m. in the 3500 block of northwest 86th Street. A Shawnee County investigator tells KSNT only one vehicle was involved in the crash.

Deputies say Warner had been driving east on 86th St. when the passenger-side tires moved off the roadway, causing him to over-correct, and skid across the road into a ditch. Authorities say the vehicle then rolled over and flipped over back onto the roadway.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office says Warner was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle.

The accident remains under investigation at this time.
