Mother of child killed in weekend crash near Derby dies

DERBY, Kan. (AP) — A mother has died from injuries sustained in a south-central Kansas crash that killed her toddler daughter over the weekend.

A house supervisor at Wesley Medical Center says 28-year-old Caitlin Wilson died Thursday. The Wichita Eagle reports that she was critically injured Sunday when a vehicle veered into oncoming traffic near Derby. The crash report says Wilson swerved to get out of the way and collided with a pickup truck. The collision killed Wilson’s 23-month-old daughter, Tessa Ann Wilson, and injured the truck’s driver.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is still seeking information about a possible third vehicle involved in the crash.

A GoFundMe page set up to help with medical expenses for the Wilsons had raised more than $11,000 as of Thursday night.
