LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A woman has died in a utility-terrain vehicle accident southeast of Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal World reports that the accident happened Saturday as 35-year-old Lori Vantuyl and her husband were traveling in a four-seat Arctic Cat UTV on the road in front of their residence.

Lt. Steve Lewis of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that the cause of the accident is under investigation but that it is believed her husband lost control of the UTV. It crashed after rolling.
