A Kansas woman has died after her car crashed into the back of a turning semi in Reno County, state troopers said.

Trooper Chad Crittenden said in a series of tweets on Wednesday that a fatality crash happened on westbound K-96 at Halstead Road. Emergency crews were called at around 11:29 a.m., a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report states.

Investigators determined a 2017 Ford Focus crashed into the back of a 2016 Kenworth semi that was pulling a trailer. The semi had slowed down as it was making a right-hand turn from the highway onto Halstead Road.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck. She was identified in the KHP report at 55-year-old Mary M. Rosenberger, of Medicine Lodge. The 58-year-old Garden City man driving the semi had no apparent injury.
