Police release name of Wichita woman killed in wheelchair crash


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Police say 55-year-old Tracey Crawford of Wichita is the woman who was killed in a crash in southeast Wichita Wednesday.

Crawford was trying to cross Rock Road near Funston in an electric wheelchair just before 3 p.m. Investigators say she was headed from the westside of the street to the eastside when a northbound SUV hit her.

Wichita Police Officer Trevor Macy said there is no crosswalk at that location, just sidewalks on either side of Rock Road.

Police say the people in the SUV and numerous witnesses stayed at the scene to help with the investigation.

This was the 42nd vehicular fatality of the year for Wichita and the 11th pedestrian fatality.
