Fatal collision in Barton County
Placeholder Image

An Ellsworth woman died when the vehicle she was driving collided with another vehicle on K-156, 14 miles northeast of Great Bend at 4:19 p.m. on Tuesday. A 2000 Mazda protege driven by Teresa Mehl, age 45, was travelling east on K-156 and crossed into the westbound lane, colliding with a 2012 GMC Sierra 2500 driven by Andrew Kirkpatrick, 31, from Ellinwood.

Kansas highway patrol reports Kirkpatrick swerved to miss the Mazda and they ended up in the north ditch, where they collided and the Mazda rolled onto its side. Kirkpatrick was not wearing his seat belt and possibly has an injury.
