One person was killed and another was injured in a single-vehicle accident near Kutter’s Furniture on K-96 in the early morning hours Tuesday.

According to Reno County dispatch, the call about the crash came in at 1:44 a.m.

Deputy Kevin Sipe said with the Reno County Sheriff’s Office said that deputies, along with South Hutchinson Fire and Reno County EMS, were dispatched to the 2100 block of South K-14 Highway for a single-vehicle fatality accident.

The driver, identified by his Colorado driver’s license as Benjamin Buzzini, was driving north in the 2100 block of South K-14 when he left the road for an unknown reason. The 2010 Jeep he was driving rolled several times before coming to rest in the Kutter’s Furniture parking lot. Buzzini was ejected from the vehicle and was taken to Wesley Medical Center with serious injuries.

A female passenger from Wichita sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name was being withheld pending next of kin notification.

Neither occupant was wearing a seat belt, and speed appeared to be a factor in the accident, which still is under investigation.

As of 7:50 a.m., crews were still on the scene, but it was cleared by about 8:30 a.m.
