Woman dies after crash with truck near Wichita, KS: Sheriff

Update, 4:30 p.m. Thursday:

A woman has died after a delivery truck ran a stop sign and crashed into her SUV, officials said.

Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Tim Myers told The Eagle on Thursday that Linda Keller died after being hurt in a crash Monday afternoon in the northwest part of the county. She was 60 years old and from Cheney.

A sheriff’s office accident report states that Keller was eastbound on 21st Street as Ray Crook was northbound on 247th Street West. Crook’s vehicle “ran the stop sign” and struck the passenger side of Keller’s vehicle.

Keller was taken to Ascension Via Christi St. Francis hospital in critical condition. Crook was taken to the same hospital in serious condition.

Photos from the scene showed a Cintas box truck had caught fire during the wreck.

No citations have been issued and the crash remains under investigation, Myers said.

Original story:

At least two people were hurt and taken to a hospital after a crash Monday afternoon in northwest Sedgwick County.

Emergency crews were called at around 1:30 p.m. to an injury accident at 21st Street North and 247th Street West, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. One patient was reported to be in critical condition, and a second was in serious condition.

The intersection, which is northwest of Goddard, is blocked. The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the wreck.

TALMADGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Deputies are investigating after a 76-year-old man from Marne crashed and died while trying to corral an escaped horse.

Authorities responded to the scene on Buchanan St. near Linden Dr. NW at around 6 p.m. Saturday evening.

The victim was trying to follow the horse in a side-by-side off-road vehicle (ORV) when he somehow lost control, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators say that’s when the ORV rolled over and pinned the driver to the ground.

First responders attempted but were unable to save his life.

Deputies are still investigating an exact cause of the crash.
