A Longton man was killed Tuesday night in a motorcyle accident that occurred near Cambridge in Cowley County.
62-year-old David M. Ancell was dead at the scene of the single vehicle accident that happened around 6:30 p.m, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
Ancell was eastbound on U.S. 160 highway when he veered off the roadway and struck an embankment. He was ejected from his 2007 Honda motorcycle.
Initial reports from the scene indicated the accident may have occurred some time before it was noticed by someone passing through that area.
Ancell was wearing a helmet, according to the highway patrol.
