A Lawrence man is dead after a crash on a highway near Kansas City.

It happened shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday on K-10 between Renner Boulevard and Ridgeview Road in Lenexa.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports that an eastbound van side-swiped an eastbound pickup truck, causing the truck to spin out and cross the median into westbound traffic. The pickup was then hit in the drivers side door by a westbound truck. A fourth car heading west then hit the other westbound truck.

The driver of the pickup that was hit was taken to a hospital in Overland Park where he later died. He's been identified as 52-year-old Randy Schimmel of Lawrence.

No one else was hurt.
