A 79-year-old Paola, Kan., man was killed Wednesday morning as he was attempting to pass another vehicle on U.S. 169 in Anderson County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said David L. Yarnell was southbound at 6:45 a.m. and moved into the northbound lane to pass a vehicle in front of him when his 1997 Oldsmobile 88 struck an oncoming semi truck head-on. Another semi traveling south on U.S. 169 then also struck the Oldsmobile.

There were no other injuries. Yarnell was not wearing a seat belt.
