4 killed in Wichita traffic accident

Associated Press - March 16, 2014 9:25 pm

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.
