2 dead, 4 injured in downtown Wichita crash
WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Police tell KSN that a 12-year-old girl and 70-year-old woman died after a multi-car crash in downtown Wichita.
It happened just before 2 p.m. at Douglas Avenue and South Broadway. Wichita police say the girl and woman were in the same car, though it was originally thought the girl was a pedestrian. Captain Jeff Weible says one person is in critical condition, and another is in serious. Police said two suspects are in serious condition in the hospital, accused of causing the crash with the allegedly stolen vehicle.
The crash spawned from a car chase, when officers saw an alleged stolen vehicle at the 1000 block of North Broadway. “As they were trying to turn around to follow the vehicle, the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed,” said Capt. Jeff Weible with the Wichita Police Department.
