Authorities say a Texas man died when his semi-trailer truck hit downed power lines in southwest Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 42-year-old Louis James Torres, of Midland, died Tuesday afternoon on a rural road about 17 miles north of Satanta in Haskell County.

The patrol says Torres was driving on a road that had been closed when his tractor-trailer hit the power lines.
