A bull rider who suffered fatal injuries at a rodeo in southeastern Kansas has been identified as a 22-year-old Cole Camp man. Authorities say Justin Jeffries died at a hospital after being bucked by a 1,700-pound bull Saturday at the Allen County Fair Rodeo.
Authorities said Jeffries was wearing a vest and helmet when he was thrown just after leaving the gate to attempt an 8-second ride. The bull’s hind hooves hit Jeffries in the chest and abdomen. It’s the first fatality in the 27-year history of the Allen County Fair Rodeo.
