The 19-year-old man driving the Focus was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“Anytime that you see an intersection that has flashing lights, it’s because there have been similar incidents in the past,” said Lt. Jason Gill, Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office. “This is an intersection that we worked a couple of accidents before. The thing is, I’m sure people run these stop signs all the time. There just happened to be someone there today that caused a collision.”
The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the circumstances of the crash. It has not released any names yet.
