A woman was killed in west Wichita after she stopped for an on-coming funeral procession.  

Police officer Charley Davidson says the funeral motorcade was south-bound on 119th Street West, and traffic on the north-bound side of the street had pulled over.  Her vehicle was struck by a van that failed to stop at around 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman was identified as Karen Capps, 59, of Valley Center.  

The Wichita Eagle reports that the district attorney's office is reviewing the case to determine if charges are warranted.
