An Argonia woman died Wednesday after her car crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on into a semi.
Linda D. Haskin, 57, lost control of the 1997 Dodge passenger car she was driving west on U-160 after the collision and slid into a ditch, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report. The car struck a guardrail, causing the car to flip and land on its top in a creek.
The crash happened at about 3:25 p.m. about 1.5 miles east of Argonia, in Sumner County, the highway patrol reported.
Haskin died at the scene. Her 21-year-old passenger, Samantha Haskin, was transported to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis for treatment. A 3-month-old boy in the car also suffered injuries; he was taken to Sumner Regional Medical Center, according to the crash report.
