Police are urging people to not follow the lead of a Wichita woman who was struck by a car after stepping onto a street in an attempt to rescue a line of ducklings.
A woman has died after police say she was struck by a vehicle of the side of Interstate 135 in southern Wichita.
WIBW-TV reports that the woman, who authorities say was in her 20s, was killed Sunday morning. According to Wichita police Sgt.

The other passenger was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
