State troopers said a motorcycle crashed into a road sign “at a high rate of speed” in a northwest Wichita wreck that left one person critically hurt.
Emergency crews were called at around 1:39 p.m. Tuesday to the northbound I-235 ramp to Meridian, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. One patient was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
A Kansas Department of Transportation traffic camera shows one motorcycle involved in the wreck.
A 50-year-old man from Wichita was riding the motorcycle — a 2014 Harley Davidson — on the exit ramp “at a high rate of speed,” according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report. “Vehicle left the roadway to the left and struck a chevron directional sign,” troopers wrote in the report.
