Three people have died following three separate crashes in Kansas on Tuesday. 

The day's first deadly crash reported by the Kansas Highway Patrol happened at 8:10 a.m. north of Cherryvale in Montgomery County. A Honda Civic was eastbound on U-400 near 5300 Road when it crossed the center line and sideswiped a semi.

The second wreck happened two and a half hours later east of Moran in Allen County. Troopers say a Chevy pickup was heading west on Highway 54 when the driver lost control and rolled the truck, ejecting the driver and passenger. 

The driver, 65-year-old Rolland Dwayne Guder of Bronson, died at Allen County Hospital. The passenger, 50-year-old Shawn Wade Pulliam of Yates Center, was hospitalized with serious injuries. 

Tuesday's third fatal crash happened at 5:15 p.m. west of Pittsburg in Crawford County. A southbound semi on K-7 failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the passenger side of a Nissan Sentra.
