A Southeast Kansas woman died after a four car crash involving 10 people in Crawford County last Friday night. The Kansas State Highway Patrol says the accident happened on US-69, about a mile north of K-47.
Irma Hughes, age 83, of Fort Scott, was heading northbound when her car rear-ended by another vehicle which pushed her 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 which hit a tree. Hughes was pronounced dead just before midnight Friday. Three others were transported to the local hospital with injuries.
