Authorities say a 27-year-old Hutchinson man was killed when his car hydroplaned and hit a bridge pillar in McPherson County.

The accident happened at around 4 p.m. Tuesday at K-61 and 8th Avenue, just north of Inman. The McPherson County Sheriff's Office said deputies arrived to find a wrecked blue Honda Accord.

"Inman Fire and McPherson EMS personnel rendered life saving measures but despite those efforts, the driver was declared dead at 4:27 p.m.," the sheriff's office said. 

The driver was identified as Andrew Tolbert.

Witnesses indicated that Tolbert's car lost control on the wet pavement, went into the ditch and hit the pillar.
