Richardson County Sheriff 11.11.2019
At 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 11, a two-vehicle accident occurred on U.S. Highway 75 and 703 Trail (approximately two miles north of the Kansas state line.) A semi tractor trailer hauling cattle driven by Walter Oswalt, 60 of Nixa, Mo., was northbound on U.S. Highway 75 when a southbound 2019 Dodge Charger driven by Norbert Rungano, 25, of Little Rock, Ark., lost control and crossed the center line — hitting the semi head on. Sabetha Fire and Rescue, Morrill Fire, and Falls City Rescue responded. Both drivers were transported to Sabetha Community Hospital. Rungano was later transported to Stormont Vail in Topeka, where he later died.
