Car crashes at railroad critically injuring 2 near Derby

Local

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputies say two people are in critical condition early Monday after their car crashed at a railroad track south of Derby.

Dispatchers said the crash was near K-15 and 95th Street South at 1:16 a.m. Two patients were critically injured when EMS responded.

The intersection is closed for what authorities called a ‘large scene.’

Earlier reports indicated a train versus car crash, but deputies later corrected the report that the victims’ vehicle wrecked in the railroad track rather than a train.

A train was in the area, though. Officials say its conductor first reported the crash to authorities.
