Two With Potential Information Sought In Fatal Hit and Run

Investigators from the Saline County Sheriff’s Office want to speak with two people as an investigation into a fatal hit and run accident continues.

Deputies arrested 62-year-old Lewis Grider of Salina late Friday evening. He is accused of hitting 49-year-old Gail Lynne Kline, who was riding a bicycle on West Crawford Street west of Salina Friday morning. She was found lying in the North ditch by a passerby.

Now, deputies are looking for two more drivers who were in the area.

A male driver of a white sports utility vehicle who may have stopped to help the driver of a white full sized van after a the accident, between the hours of 8:20-8:45 a.m.

The Sheriff’s Office also wants to speak with a female driver of gray sports utility vehicle who was “waived through” the bicycle accident scene by civilians at approximately the same time.

Neither is a suspect in any crime or accident. The Sheriff’s Office simply wishes to speak with the drivers as they may have information helpful in the investigation of a hit and run accident.

Grider was booked into the Saline County Jail on charges that could include involuntary manslaughter.
