K-10 Fatality Crash Victims Identified

The LAWRENCE (KS) JOURNAL-WORLD is reporting that the name of the person who died in the cross-over crash on K-10 near De Soto is 23-year-old Amanda Newton of Lawrence.

The LJW reports that Ms. Newton was eastbound on K-10 when her vehicle crossed the grassy median for an unknown reason and- after avoiding at least 2 other vehicles- slammed head-on into a westbound Fed Ex truck driven by "Donavan Henderson of Kansas City MO.."
