WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – One person died in a one-vehicle crash in north Wichita Monday night. The crash occurred around 7:15 p.m. on K-254 Highway just east of the I-135 interchange.
Sedgwick County dispatchers confirm the victim in the crash was ejected and died at the scene. Westbound K254 has been closed to traffic from I-135 due to the crash.
Metzin said the driver, a man who lived in Wichita, was travelling westbound on K254 in a GMC Envoy SUV when the crash occurred.
“It appears he was traveling westbound, went onto the right shoulder, maybe down into the grass, came back on the roadway, and due to his over-correcting the vehicle rolled at that point,” said Metzin.
Metzin said it hasn’t been determined how many times the vehicle rolled.
He said the Highway Patrol is requesting anyone who witnessed the accident to contact the Kansas Highway Patrol at 316-744-0451.
