According to a press release from Lyon County Sheriff Jeff Cope, at 5:59 a.m. Lyon County Deputies, Emporia/Lyon County Ambulance and Hartford first responders, responded to a rollover accident in the 2200 block of Road 60.
When they arrived they found the driver Jennifer Bechtel, 21 of rural Hartford was ejected from the vehicle. She sustained life ending injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by Lyon County Ambulance personnel.
