KWCH - March 27, 2017


Wichita Police say a 61-year-old man whose vehicle left a road before striking a large sign at Central and Edgemoor has died.

Sgt. Nikki Woodrow said it is unclear at this time if a medical condition played a role in the accident.
One person was injured in a crash reported a little before 4 p.m. Saturday near Central and Edgemoor. The intersection closed as crews worked to clear the scene.

Police say a minivan accelerated for an unknown reason, and hit another vehicle before crossing the intersection and crashing into a utility pole.

Police say the driver was pinned in the van when first responders arrived on scene. First responders performed CPR on the driver who was taken to a Wichita hospital in critical condition.

There were no other injuries reported.
