Woman Struck, Killed on Side of I-135 in Wichita

Associated Press - October 12, 2015 6:19 am

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. Matt Lang, the victim had car trouble, and she and a passenger pulled off to the side of the road. Lang says the two exited the vehicle and another came up from behind and struck the driver, who was thrown into a ditch. She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

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

Authorities say they are still searching for the suspect whose car was located near the crash scene.
