According to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash log, Michael Murphy, 57, of Dumas, Texas, was driving a 2016 Hyundai Sonata westbound at 3:16 p.m. Sunday on K-156 west of Farmland Road in Finney County when the car crossed the center line. It struck a 2011 GMC Sierra driven eastbound by Heinrich Neufeld, 20, of Rolla.
Murphy’s car stopped in the eastbound lane facing north, while Neufeld’s pickup rolled once and stopped on its passenger side in the south ditch.

Also taken to St. Catherine Hospital for injuries were Cornelius Wiebe, 21, of Moscow; Johnny Wiebe, 19, of Hugoton; Eva Friesen, 17, of Satanta, and Jessica Luepqui, 20, of Montezuma — all passengers in Neufeld’s pickup.
