A 21-year-old Wichita woman was killed Tuesday when the vehicle she was driving collided head-on with a semitractor-trailer rig north of Iola.
The Kansas Highway Patrol reported Jahneesa C. Trowers, Wichita, was northbound on U.S. 169, about five miles north of Iola, when her 2006 Kia Sorento crossed the center line and collided with the southbound truck driven by Karwan S. Shuker, 32, Lincoln, Neb.
Trowers’ sport utility vehicle wound up in the west ditch. Shuker’s truck careened into the east ditch and turned onto its side, flipping the trailer as well. The trailer came to rest on the side of the highway.
