Four people were injured — two seriously — in a two-vehicle collision in west Wichita Friday morning, authorities said.

The collision occurred at 7:18 a.m. Friday at Kellogg and 151st Street West, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. A minivan turning left from eastbound Kellogg onto 151st West was struck by a Pontiac driving west on Kellogg, Kansas Highway Patrol Lt. Carl Mackey said.

A 6-year-old girl was taken to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis in critical condition, said Kevin Lanterman, a division leader for Sedgwick County EMS.

“It sounds like the impact was right on where she was sitting,” Lanterman said.

The child stopped breathing at the scene of the collision but was resuscitated, the dispatch supervisor said. Her mother and two brothers were also taken by ambulance to St. Francis.

The two boys were admitted to the hospital and their mother treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said. One boy is in serious condition, the other in fair condition.

A vehicle in the the lefthand turn lane preparing to go south on 151st may have impeded the view of the woman driving the minivan, Mackey said.

Traffic in the area was blocked for a while after the accident, officials said, but eastbound lanes opened after a short period. Westbound traffic in that area of Kellogg reopened shortly before 10 a.m.
