Crash on K-254 near Kechi kills Augusta woman, 51

A 51-year-old Augusta woman died Tuesday after her passenger car vaulted off of a K-254 overpass and slammed into a concrete wall, the Kansas Highway Patrol said in a crash report.

Debra A. Shriver was driving a 2010 Ford Focus east on K-254 when the car left the highway just west of Oliver. It then crashed head-on into the wall at 8:06 p.m., the highway patrol said.

Authorities found Shriver unresponsive; she was pronounced dead by paramedics about 20 minutes later, a Sedgwick County dispatcher said.

Shriver was alone in the vehicle, according to the highway patrol’s report. The crash site is near Kechi.
