A two-vehicle head-on crash in southwest Wichita has killed one person.

It took place around 2:15 a.m. Saturday, near Hoover and MacArthur Road. Sgt. Benjamin Romero with the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office tells KSN-TV that a vehicle went off the roadway, the driver over-corrected and crashed into another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.

A woman in her 20s died from her injuries at a local hospital, while two people are in critical condition and another two are in serious condition. 

The sheriff’s office says alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.
