Derek J. Drennon of Lansing was killed in the crash, which occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. on Kansas 7 near 83rd Street.
According to the patrol, Drennon had been driving a 2016 Ford Edge SUV northbound on Kansas 7 and was passing traffic on the right shoulder when he lost control. The Ford sideswiped another vehicle traveling northbound in the right lane.
The Ford then cut across the highway and entered the median, where it rolled over multiple times, ejecting Drennon.
