Fatal crash victim remembered
10/07/2021

(KAIR)--A dedicated husband, a loving father, an avid motorcyclist, and a very valued member of the Atchison County Sheriff’s Office.

That’s how Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie describes Jeremy Masuch, a corrections officer with Laurie’s office, who was killed early Wednesday morning in a rural Atchison County traffic crash.

The words of remembrance were posted to social media by Laurie, following the fatal wreck, with Laurie, in the post, saying “thank you for your service, Officer Masuch.”
Masuch, a 42-year-old Nortonville resident, was on his way to work, shortly before 3:00 Wednesday morning, when his motorcycle and a pick-up truck collided at the intersection of U.S. 59 and K-116, leaving Masuch dead.

According to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol, Masuch was northbound on U.S. Highway 59, about 10 miles south of Atchison, when a pickup truck turned north onto 59, from K-116, causing Masuch’s motorcycle to strike the passenger side of the truck.

Masuch, wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup, 65-year-old Cummings resident Ricky Brown, was not injured.
