Christopher Randolph Sr., of Kansas City, died at the scene of the crash, which occurred early Saturday. The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/TT3XGA) that a 39-year-old woman with the victim also was hit but survived.
Randolph's car was pulled onto the right shoulder of the highway, and he was putting gas into the car when they were hit. The Kansas Highway Patrol has been seeking the driver of the car that struck the couple.
The fatal wreck occurred on the same day as the funeral for a Clifton Scott, a Missouri Department of Transportation worker who was killed after he was struck while helping at an accident scene on Interstate 70.
