A Wichita woman has been killed in a rollover crash near Benton.

The crash was reported around 2:45 p.m. on K-254 and Towakani Road. According to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, a Ford Mustang was westbound on K-254 when it drifted into the median. Deputies believe the driver then overcorrected, went into the north ditch and rolled at least three times.

Several witnesses stopped to help render first aid to the driver, but she was soon after pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was hurt.

Her identity has not been released, but deputies say she’s in her 30s and from Wichita.

The highway is open.
