The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what caused a crash that killed a 24-year-old man on Ridge Road just south of Sedgwick.

At 12:06 a.m. on Saturday, Sedgwick County deputies were dispatched to an injury accident near 109th Street North and Ridge Road, about a mile south of Sedgwick. They found a gray Kia Sportage in the middle of the road resting on its roof, Lt. Tim Myers said in a news release.

Myers said the Kia appeared to have been traveling south on Ridge. The driver, a 24-year-old man, was the only person in the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash is under investigation, and what caused it has not been determined, Myers said.
