The man suspected of running over a Wichita police officer during a pursuit is now charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.
Four people have died in a single-vehicle accident in Wichita.
Wichita police say the accident occurred Saturday night when the SUV crashed into a concrete barrier, tipped on its nose and caught fire. The accident left a bridge closed to traffic for several hours.
Wichita police Sgt. Bart Brunscheen says a police officer pulled one woman out of the car to safety. She was taken to a Wichita hospital in critical condition. The four others were pronounced dead at the scene.
The victims’ identities haven’t been released.
