Deputy hurt, wife killed in motorcycle accident


GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas jail deputy was critically injured and his wife died in a motorcycle accident on a Barton County street.

Great Bend police say the collision happened Saturday when a trailer carrying a lawnmower disconnected from a pickup truck and hit a motorcycle ridden by Shawn and Danielle Schellinger.

Both were flown to a Wichita hospital, where Danielle Schellinger died late Saturday. Shawn Schellinger, who is a Reno County jail deputy, remained in critical condition Sunday.
