Woman Abandoned After Accident

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Two people who were in a speeding car that crashed in Wichita abandoned a 20-year-old woman who suffered a broken neck and other serious injuries in the crash.

Wichita police say the woman was thrown from the passenger seat of the speeding vehicle when the driver apparently lost control and crashed into a concrete wall and a tree Saturday. Police Sgt. Scott Brunow told The Wichita Eagle that alcohol was found in the car.

He says the woman suffered “numerous broken bones” in addition to the neck injury and was taken to a hospital, where she was in serious condition. He says two other people in the car fled before police arrived, leaving the badly injured passenger alone. The driver hasn’t been identified.
