WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Two men were injured in a two-vehicle crash west of downtown. It happened Friday around 10:30 a.m. at Seneca Street and Museum Boulevard, according to the Wichita Fire Department.

Wichita Police Department Seargent Troy Nedbalek said witnesses saw one vehicle allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed on northbound Seneca before the crash. The driver failed to make the curve and ended up hitting the other vehicle coming from the Cowtown area.

“He ended up jumping the curb several feet before the intersection and then slamming head-first into the other car, hitting them head-on,” Nedbalek said.

According to the Wichita Fire Department, when crews arrived, they found the two-vehicle accident with two men pinned in the wreckage. Both men were in critical condition. Firefighters used the “jaws of life” and vehicle struts to stabilize the scene and free the men.

One of the men was taken to the hospital with critical injuries. The other was upgraded to serious condition.

The intersection will remain closed for several hours as police investigate.

Police said the intersection has had a lot of crashes in the past.

“People are unaware of this curve. We have had some fatalities at this intersection before. I don’t know if it is not paying attention or if they are driving too fast for the conditions. At this curve, it is 30 mph for a reason,” Nedbalek added.
