HUTCHINSON — A 49-year-old Moundridge woman died this afternoon after her vehicle lost control on U.S. 50 near K-61, an official said.
The driver was identified as Christine Heckard, said Hutchinson police Sgt. Brian Hirt.
The accident occurred at 3:46 p.m.
Hirt gave this account: Heckard, who had been driving east on U.S. 50, had been seen passing other vehicles before entering a 45-mph zone. Her 2004 GMC pickup failed to negotiate a curve, left the highway and rolled over, ejecting Heckard.
