Fatal four car crash on US 69


A Southeast Kansas woman dies after a four car crash involving 10 people.

The Kansas State Highway Patrol says the accident happened on US-69, less than a mile north of K-47 in Crawford County. Just before 9:30 p.m. Friday, Irma Hughes, 83, of Fort Scott, was heading northbound when her car rear-ended by another vehicle.

The impact pushed Hughes’ car into the southbound lanes, where it collided with a second car. Her car went into a ditch, and was hit by a third car. The third car also hit a tree.

Hughes was pronounced dead just before midnight. Three other people involved were taken to a local hospital with injuries.
