Lloyd Mintzmyer, president of the Praise Network, which includes Tri-State Praise and KGCR radio, died last night in a traffic accident.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, 66-year-old Lloyd Mintzmyer was driving a small pickup truck north on U.S. 183 Highway. He drove left of center, and struck an on-coming semi head-on.
Mintzmyer was killed in the crash. Troopers say that it is unknown if he was buckled up.
The driver of the semi, who was buckled up, was not hurt.
The crash happened just before 9:00 Sunday night, on U.S. 183 Highway in Phillips County, 2.5 miles south of the Kansas Highway 9 Junction.
All of us at Rocking M Radio family pass along our condolences to the Mintzmyer family and to our broadcast colleagues at KGCR and Tri-State Praise.
