According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 2002 Ford F150 driven by 69-year-old Sheila Bosch was northbound on 176th Street about 4 miles south of Gorham around 1:30 p.m. and turned right onto 4-Corners Road. A 2005 Ford 150 driven by 72-year-old Ray Bosch, also of Gorham, was northbound on 176th Street behind the Sheila Bosch vehicle. Sheila Bosch then attempted to make a U-turn in the intersection.
