Authorities have identified an Andover man killed Wednesday morning near 47th Street South and Rock Road as 81-year-old James Barkley.
Sedgwick County sheriff’s Lt. David Mattingly said Barkley was driving a Honda CRV north on Rock when he pulled onto the shoulder to initiate a U-turn. As he turned, a 35-year-old Derby man also driving northbound broadsided the SUV.
Barkley was taken in critical condition to Wesley Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Barkley’s passenger, a 78-year-old Derby woman, suffered minor injuries, Mattingly said.
