December 26, 2018

WICHITA, KS. – As reported online at kwch.com, a woman was killed in a three-car collision in Wichita, Kansas. One other person was injured in the accident, and authorities think the crash might have started with a medical emergency.*

A 2015 Dodge pickup truck was traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on Maize Road in Wichita. At the intersection with Pawnee, the Dodge clipped a 2011 GMC Sierra and continued north. The Dodge then rear-ended a 2013 Hyundai Sonata that was stopped at a stoplight. The force of impact pushed the Hyundai about 50 yards to the north and caused the Dodge to flip onto its roof and slide farther north before coming to a stop. 

The driver of the Hyundai was trapped in the vehicle when emergency responders arrived. She was removed from the vehicle and died at the scene. Wichita officials have identified her as 30-year-old Elissa Warns-Branson. 

The driver of the GMC was not injured. This driver has not been identified. The driver of the Dodge, who has also not been identified, was injured and transported to a local hospital for treatment. Officials said his injuries were not life-threatening. 

The cause of the collision is not yet known, but police said a medical condition on the part of the Dodge driver might have set things in motion. It is not yet clear whether the driver of the Dodge will be cited or charged in connection with the fatal crash. No additional information has been reported at this time.
