Hopkins’ vehicle hit a field entrance, went airborne and rolled one and a half times.
Both Evan Hopkins and his passenger, Todd Hopkins, were taken to Pawnee Valley Community Hospital, where Todd Hopkins later died from his injuries.
Evan Hopkins was transferred to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. His condition was not available.
Both Evan and Todd Hopkins were wearing seat belts, according to the KHP.
