WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – One woman is dead following a crash early Thursday on eastbound Kellogg near downtown Wichita. The crash happened near the Washington Street exit just after midnight.

According to the Wichita Police Department, 21-year-old Legend Johnson passed away at an area hospital and 25-year-old Tony Porter attempted to flee the crash but was taken into custody by officers. Both were ejected from the vehicle.

Police said Porter became uncooperative during the investigation and spat on an officer. He was taken to jail and booked on suspicion for the simple battery of a law enforcement officer.
