MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a 21-year-old Kansas man died while trying to walk across Interstate 70 overnight.

The crash east of Manhattan, Kansas, forced the closure of I-70 for a couple hours after it happened shortly before 4 a.m.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Matthew Bailey of Mayetta, Kansas, died after he was struck by an eastbound Jeep Wrangler driven by a 23-year-old man.

The Jeep's driver and passenger were not hurt.
