SEDGWICK COUNTY—One person died and three others were injured in two separate accident just after 2a.m. Saturday in Wichita

The initial 911 call reported a single vehicle had rolled over in the eastbound lanes in the 6600 Block of Kellogg near Armour with two people inside, according to Officer Trevor Macy.

As officers arrived on scene, they learned that a second accident involving a motorcycle had occurred just after the first crash.

Officers located the motorcycle driver, a male, deceased at the scene. They also found three additional people with critical injuries who were all transported to area hospitals. Another person was located uninjured.

Through the investigation, officers learned that a silver SUV was eastbound on Kellogg with two occupants – a 48-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man– when the driver lost control of the vehicle and struck the median, causing the SUV to roll.

An uninvolved person, a female, witnessed the turned-over SUV and began rendering aid to the occupants.

As she was rendering aid, a motorcycle with two occupants traveled eastbound on Kellogg. The motorcycle struck the woman, then hit the SUV.

The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced deceased on scene. EMS  transported the female SUV driver, a female motorcycle passenger and the woman struck by the motorcycle to area hospitals for treatment of serious injuries, according to Macy. The passenger of the SUV was uninjured.

Police have not released names of the victims or additional details.
