Vehicle accident kills Derby resident

Derby Informer – October 17, 2018

A single-vehicle rollover accident killed a Derby man Tuesday evening. The accident was near the intersection of East Madison and Willow Creek and is under investigation.

Fire crews received the alarm at 6:43 p.m. and then updated information that the occupant was trapped inside the vehicle and not breathing. Both Derby and Sedgwick County fire departments responded.

Crews arrived on scene and found one male occupant trapped inside.

A hydraulic powered extrication tool, the Jaws of Life, was used to remove the driver’s side door and gain access to the man.

Resuscitative efforts were started, but stopped after the patient died at the scene.

No name has been released, but the police confirmed that the person is a local resident.

It’s the second fatal accident in the city this year.
