A 66-year-old Garden City woman died early Sunday from injuries she sustained when a vehicle crossed the center line and collided head-on with her vehicle on US-50 highway in rural Gray County.
Gilberto Vital, 20, of Dodge City, was eastbound on US-50 in a 2009 Ford pickup about 2:25 a.m. when his vehicle went left of center and struck a westbound 2011 Toyota car driven by Alice F. Ochs, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. The crash occurred just east of Pierceville.
Ochs was taken to St. Catherine Hospital in Garden City, where she was pronounced dead. She wasn't wearing a seat belt, according to the highway patrol.
Vital, who was wearing a seat belt, sustained a minor injury and wasn't taken to a hospital, according to the KHP.
