One killed in semi crash south of Goddard
UPDATE: Sedgwick County authorities have identified the person who was killed in this crash south of Goddard Tuesday morning as a 20-year-old female.
They will release her name Wednesday because they are still working to notify next of kin.
That stretch of road remains closed as of noon Tuesday.
One person is dead, another hurt after a crash between a semi and a car south of Goddard early Tuesday morning.
Captain Brad Hoch with the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office says crews were called to the scene shortly before 4:00 a.m.. The call initially came in as an explosion in the area.
When crews arrived at the scene, they found a semi and a car that had collided head on in the middle of MacArthur between 199th Street and 183rd Street West. Both vehicles were on fire.
The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, the driver of the semi was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor burns.
Capt. Hoch says the semi was hauling dry groceries, and fire crews are still working to get that fire out. He says firefighters can't get to the area where the fire is in the truck.
MacArthur will be closed in that area for several hours as the crash scene is cleaned up.
Officials are investigating what caused the crash.
