Children remain in hospital after wreck

WICHITA _ Two adults were in critical condition at a Wichita hospital today after their vehicle overturned at Kellogg and I-235 late Sunday.

Three of the four children who were riding in the SUV were in fair condition at another Wichita hospital.

A fourth child, age 1, has been released from a hospital.

Four of the six occupants —the 1-year-old, the adults and a 12-year-old — were not using safety restraints, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

About 11:13 p.m. Sunday, the 2003 GMC SUV was exiting from eastbound Kellogg onto northbound I-235 when the driver, Jesus Vizcarra-Jiminez, 32, of Wichita, lost control of the vehicle, a Highway Patrol report says.

The SUV went off the road, overturned and landed on its wheels.

According to an initial report, all six occupants were thrown from the vehicle.

According to the patrol report, the occupants of the vehicle were Vizcarra-Jiminez; Martha Vizcarra-Jiminez, 30; Diana Vizcarra, 12; Martha Vizcarra, 8; Velaria Vizcarra, 5; and Valentin Vizcarra, 1.

The adults and the 1-year-old were taken to Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis. The three other children were taken to Wesley Medical Center.
