One killed in south Wichita highway crash

Posted: Updated:

One person has died after a crash on a south Wichita highway.

A supervisor with Sedgwick County Emergency Dispatch tells KAKE News a vehicle crashed near the south Interstate 135 and Interstate 235 interchange at around 11:28 Sunday morning. One person was pronounced dead at the scene.

The supervisor said it appears to have been a single-vehicle crash, and investigators are trying to confirm whether the crash was weather-related.

A separate crash happened at around the same time at the north I-235 and I-135 junction, but that was not a fatal crash. Several other crashes have been reported across the Wichita area due to slick roads as winter storms move across KAKEland. Drivers are reminded to plan extra time to get to your destination, and the Emergency Accident Reporting Plan is in effect.
