The Kansas Highway Patrol says 13-year-old Nicholas Cox of Weskan died at a hospital soon after the early Sunday morning crash. After the truck hit the cow on U.S. 40, the pickup went into a ditch. It then hit an embankment and rolled two and a half times before landing on its top.
The Salina Journal reported that the teen and his father weren't wearing seat belts. The teen's father also was taken to a hospital for treatment.
