A Plains man is dead following a one-vehicle accident late Wednesday night in central Seward County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said the wreck happened shortly before midnight just north of Road 17 on U.S. Highway 83.

The agency said a 2012 Kenworth semi was traveling northbound on Hwy. 83 and left the roadway and lost control for an unknown reason. The semi, KHP said, then collided with a sign and rolled on to its right side and came to rest.

The driver, 69-year-old Damon E. Brown of Plains, died from a fatal injury and was taken to Brenneman Funeral Home in Liberal.

KHP said Brown was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.
