BURRTON, Kan. (KAKE) -

Authorities say a man was hit and killed by a pickup after his car got stuck in a ditch in Reno County.

The accident happened southeast of Burrton on Tuesday. Deputy Kevin Sipe said 58-year-old Carl Yoder's car got stuck in a ditch in the 9000 block of South Worthington Road.

After a neighbor used his pickup and a tow rope to pull Yoder's car out of the ditch, a passing Dodge truck hit both vehicles, one of which struck Yoder and his neighbor. 

Yoder died at the scene. His neighbor and the driver of the other truck were treated and non-life-threatening injuries.

Deputy Sipe said the driver of the Dodge did not see the other vehicles in the road. The accident is still under investigation.
