A 39-year-old Dodge City woman was killed Monday night in a three-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 83 in Scott County.
Mony Sen Conner of Dodge City was southbound in a 2017 Toyota Camry on U.S. 83 at about 7:17 p.m., when she attempted to pass a southbound 2010 Freightliner semitrailer driven by Luis Fernando Jimenez-Sanjuan, 35, of Garden City, and side-swiped the driver’s side of a northbound 2015 Ford E450 driven by Stanton Ray Herrada, 19, of Garden City, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
After side-swiping Herrada’s vehicle, Conner’s vehicle was then pushed back over into the southbound lane, where it sideswiped Jimenez-Sanjuan’s semitrailer.
Conner was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither Jimenez-Sanjuan nor Herrada were injured. All three were wearing seat belts, according to the KHP.
The accident occurred about 12 miles north of the U.S. 83 and Kansas Highway 96 junction.
