Nearly a week after an Emporia man was killed in a traffic accident near downtown Emporia, the investigation continues and may take a while to be completed.
Lyon County Undersheriff John Koelsch says accident reconstruction work continues at this time after the death of 20-year-old Javier Escobedo early Sunday.
Authorities say Escobedo apparently failed to stop at a sign at Ninth and Commercial. Officers approached, but Escobedo sped off and tried to elude them. Escobedo crashed into a power pole at Ninth and Cottonwood and was pronounced dead later Sunday morning at Newman Regional Health.
Koelsch says it could be weeks before a final report is issued.
