WICHITA, Kan -- An overnight crash in rural Cowley County killed one man and sent two others to the hospital.

The accident happened on US 166 and 11th Rd, approximately 4 miles west of Arkansas City around 9:20 p.m. Sunday, shutting down traffic for nearly three hours.

An older model Toyota car driven by Clessie Cole, Jr. of Wichita was driving north on 11th Rd. and collided with a Oldsmobile driving eastbound on US 166.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says that Cole either failed to stop at the intersection or turned onto US 166 in front of the Oldsmobile.

Cole, 47, was killed in the accident. His 41-year-old female passenger was hurt as well as the driver of the Oldsmobile. All three people involved in the accident were wearing seat belts.
