The Kansas Highway Patrol says a man who stopped to help a stalled motorist, is now in critical condition after being struck on Kansas Highway 10.

The accident occurred in the westbound lanes of K-10 just west of K-7 in Olathe around 8:30 p.m..

Johnson County Med-Act transported the man to an area hospital with critical injuries.

Troopers say the injured man was driving westbound on the highway when he found a car stalled in the right lane of the highway. The man decided to help and parked his car on the right shoulder.

As the man was trying to assist the stalled driver, a third vehicle struck the man and the stalled vehicle.

The westbound lanes remained closed until around 12:30 a.m. Saturday as the Kansas Highway Patrol's Critical Highway Accident Response Team worked to map the incident scene.
