Washburn Review

Jonathan Jeffrey Kaspar, a sophomore at Washburn, was killed early Friday morning when his car collided with a semi-trailer on U.S. 75 highway.

Kaspar, 20, was a native of Topeka and graduated from Hayden High School in 2008. The accident occurred shortly after midnight near mile marker 115 in Osage County. The highway was closed after the accident.

According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, the Kansas Highway Patrol said Kaspar’s 1997 Lexus crossed over the center line and hit the semi head on. The semi was driven by 52-year-old Philip John Mulder of Doon, Iowa, who was transported to Coffey County Hospital with injuries.
