A man was killed Wednesday morning in an accident in Geary County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 71-year-old Major Willie Washington, of Kansas City, Missouri was outside of his semi truck around 7 a.m. in the 3200 block of US 77 in Junction City.

As he attempted to reenter the vehicle, the truck began rolling and he became pinned between the power unit and another semi trailer.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and transported to a local funeral home.
