CIMARRON, Kan. - A 6-year-old Dodge City girl was killed and five others were injured in a rollover accident in Gray County. It happened around 2:30 Saturday afternoon, about 14 miles west of Cimarron on Highway 50.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says a GMC van was westbound on the highway when the right-rear tire blew, causing the driver to lose control. The van then rolled and came to rest in a ditch.
Esella Vasquez was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Five others in the van suffered potentially serious injuries.
Authorities say Vasquez, another 6-year-old girl, and a 3-year-old boy were not safely restrained.
