4 Women Dead in Rollover Crash in Kansas Amid Snowy Conditions
Four people died in a rollover crash in Kansas amid snowy, wintry weather, according to reports.
The Kansas Highway Patrol said that the single-car crash occurred as the vehicle was going down Interstate 70 near Abilene, about 90 miles west of Topeka, ABC News reported.
According to Fox4, the victims were four women. The Kansas Highway Patrol said that Lisa Luft, 47; Brianna Luft, 20; Aria Luft, 14, and Saleena Senzee, 18, died in the crash around 10 a.m.
Officials said the truck they were traveling in hit a guardrail due to weather conditions before the truck fell off a bridge, Fox4 reported. The truck then fell 25 feet before landing on its top.
Three of the truck’s four occupants weren’t wearing seat belts, said police.
The National Weather Service noted that there was “light to moderate” snow in the area.
Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Ben Gardner wrote on Twitter that troopers “are working to complete ALL death notifications to the families involved before further info is released to the public,” ABC reported.
“May peace find those affected by today’s crash,” he said.
The Kansas Highway Patrol tweeted pictures of Interstate 70 and Interstate 135—showing moderate snow on the ground.
