Investigation ongoing after Arkansas City woman struck by vehicle


The Arkansas City, Ks. Police Department is investigating after an individual was apparently struck by a vehicle Sunday night and transported to the hospital with injuries.

Officers were dispatched at around 5 p.m. Sunday to the 600 block of South C Street following the report of the accident. They learned that an injured female had been underneath a 1995 GMC pickup truck, working on the muffler, when she asked a family member to drive the vehicle forward. The vehicle instead traveled in reverse and ran over the female, who was under the rear portion. The truck continued to back up southbound and crossed C Street, striking a parked 2012 Chevrolet.

After being sent to South Central Kansas Medical Center in Arkansas City, the woman is now in a Wichita hospital.
