Colorado man dies after police chase in Hays


A Colorado man was killed in an accident in Hays early Thursday after reportedly fleeing from police.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said Gerad F. Madrid, 34, Colorado Springs, was killed just after 2 a.m. Thursday when the 1991 Buick he was driving failed to stop at a dead end and struck an embankment at Fifth and Milner streets.

He was not wearing a seat belt, the KHP said.

The Hays Police Department is expected to release official details of the incident Friday.
