A 7-year-old child injured this morning in a one-car rollover southwest of Wichita is expected to survive, Sedgwick County sheriff’s officials said this afternoon.
The child, restrained by only a seatbelt, was flown to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in critical condition but has been upgraded with non-life threatening injuries, Sgt. Jeff Ohmart said. The 40-year-old driver of the car and a 4-year-old passenger in a booster seat also were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
The accident occurred at 8:52 a.m. this morning at West 71st Street South and South 295th Street West in southwest Sedgwick County, Ohmart said.
