The Wichita Eagle (Sunday) - - News - BY JA­SON TIDD

Two of­fi­cers on pa­trol in south Wi­chita found a pedes­trian dead af­ter a hit-and-run crash, po­lice said.

Emer­gency crews were called to Harry and I-135 just af­ter 7 p.m. Fri­day for a re­ported crash, a Sedg­wick County dis­patch su­per­vi­sor said. One per­son was re­ported to be in very crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Wi­chita po­lice tweeted about an hour later that there was a fa­tal hit-an­drun crash on the Harry over­pass cross­ing the high­way.

Of­fi­cer Paul Cruz said that two of­fi­cers on pa­trol were driv­ing on the over­pass when they saw some­one in the street. When they walked up to her, they de­ter­mined that she had been hit by a ve­hi­cle.

Paramedics were called, and the woman was pro­nounced dead at the scene, Cruz said.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing. Po­lice ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the case to call Crime Stop­pers at 316-267-2111.
