Olathe woman killed in head-on crash with semi in Greenwood County

A 20-year-old Olathe woman died in a head-on collision with a semitrailer on an icy highway in Greenwood County on New Year’s Day.

The Kansas Highway Patrol identified the deceased as Quincy Foster.

Foster was headed west on U.S. 400 in a 2003 Ford Escape when she lost control on an icy road, crossed the center line and struck an eastbound 2014 Freightliner semitrailer.

The crash occurred about 4:50 p.m. near X Road, east of Severy, which is about 60 miles east of Wichita.

Foster was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semi, as well as a passenger, were not injured.
