A 2020 Freightliner being driven by Rupen Patel, 42, of Corona California was traveling West on US Hwy 54, attempting to pass multiple vehicles. A 2009 Peterbilt being driven by Brayden Cox, 20, of Plains Kansas, was traveling East. Cox moved to the shoulder to avoid the Freightliner. The Frightliner continued East striking the Peterbilt in the south ditch.

Both Cox and Patel were taken to Southwest Medical Center in Liberal to be treated for their injuries.
