WASHINGTON, Kan. (AP) -- A 65-year-old man has died after his pickup truck was hit by a tractor-trailer that was trying to pass on a northeast Kansas highway.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Larry Roger Mueller, of Hanover, was eastbound on U.S. 36 behind a farm implement around 11 a.m. Tuesday when the semi tried to pass his pickup. The semi couldn't complete the pass and moved back into the right lane, hitting Mueller's truck.

The accident occurred near Washington, a few miles from the Nebraska border.

It was the second Kansas fatality involving a tractor-trailer in two days.

The patrol says that 72-year-old Marion Eastwood, of Fort Scott, was killed Monday when a semi ran a stop sign and struck his vehicle near the southeast Kansas town of Fulton.
