KHP identifies woman who jumped out of car; names Frankfort woman lost in rollover


The Kansas Highway Patrol has confirmed to KMAN Monday the identity of the woman who jumped out of a car to her death Wednesday south of Wamego.

Authorities confirm 25-year-old Stephanie Bryan of Wabaunsee was the woman killed.

KHP told KMAN Monday morning the incident was initially investigated as a crime scene, but ultimately ruled it suicide.

The incident happened around 5 p.m. on K-99 on Feb. 14, just south of K-18. A trooper at the scene said a woman who was a passenger in a southbound vehicle jumped from the car, and was hit by another vehicle going the same direction.

Authorities say next of kin have been notified.

The highway patrol also identified a Frankfort woman who was killed in a rollover accident over the weekend.

KHP says Stephanie Slifer was found Saturday after being reported as a missing motorist late Friday night. Authorities say her vehicle was found on its roof on the west side of K-113 south of Carnahan Creek Road.

Her next of kin has also been notified, according to the highway patrol.
