Man dies changing BC bus tire
04/11/2019

(KAIR)--A Lawrence, Kansas towing company owner is dead, killed early Sunday morning while changing a tire on a Benedictine College bus.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the Atchison-based college was in Baldwin City for a baseball game against Baker University.

53-year-old Kevin Raasch was called to the campus to fix a flat tire on what Baldwin City Police Chief Mike Pattrick told the newspaper was a motorcoach carrying the Benedictine College team.

Raasch was trying to release the jack when he became pinned under the rear of the vehicle.

Although team members and coaches were able to lift the bus and pull Raasch from beneath it, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Raasch owned and operated TransMasters Towing and Roadside Recovery for over 30 years.
