ANDOVER, Kan. — A woman has died after a tractor-trailer struck her sport utility when it stopped for a second time in about two hours on a Kansas highway.
The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2cqGiMR ) reports that 50-year-old Luvenia Bovi Lewis, of Shawnee, was hit Wednesday while stopped in the right-hand lane on the Kansas Turnpike near Andover. The Kansas Highway Patrol says Lewis died at the scene. The truck driver was uninjured.
Patrol Lt. John Lenherr says she initially was stranded when she ran out of gas about 10 miles north of the Matfield Green service area. Lenherr says a trooper gave her 2 gallons of fuel to get her going.
The patrol is trying to determine what caused her to stop again. Lenherr says she passed two gas stations before the deadly crash.
