A Kansas parks officer was the second person to die at the 15th Annual Country Stampede. Luke D. Nihart, 32, of St. George, was killed early Saturday morning after an ATV crash. Nihart was a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks officer.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the incident. KHP reports Nihart entered the Wildlife and Parks parking lot on River Pond Road at Tuttle Creek State Park around 3:20 Saturday morning at a high rate of speed. Nihart then lost control of the Yamaha Grizzly 660 ATV and crashed.

An ambulance rushed Nihart to Mercy Hospital in Manhattan
