Two passengers in the vehicle were injured and transported to area hospitals for emergency care. At this time, the incident is being investigated.

We hope the injured victims recover quickly.

Fatal Auto Accidents in Kansas

Fatal crashes take place far too often in Kansas. These accidents take the lives of hundreds of people annually. There are a significant number of accidents that take place that involve head-on impact.

Head-on collisions are more dangerous for a variety of reasons. First, two vehicles colliding head-to-head combine the force of both vehicles. Because many head-on collisions occur at high speeds, especially those that take place on highways, the speed amplifies the force of the impact, making it even harder for the vehicles to absorb. As a result, vehicles involved in high-speed head-on collisions are often severely damaged. This dramatically increases the risk that people inside the vehicles will be severely harmed.

The loss of a loved one in a fatal collision is an unimaginable tragedy that no family should have to endure.
