GREAT BEND, Kan. - A Reno County jail deputy remains in critical condition, and his wife has died following a motorcycle crash in Great Bend.
Dispatchers say a truck pulling a trailer with a lawn mower on it going eastbound met with two motorcyclists going westbound in the 5900 block of 10th Street.
The trailer detached, crossing the centerline, hitting a motorcycle ridden by Reno County Jail Deputy Shawn Schellinger and his wife Danielle.
The two suffered critical injuries and were flown to a Wichita hospital, where Danielle later died.
Another motorcyclist was believed to have laid down his bike to avoid the trailer and received minor injuries.
