A five-year-old girl, Plliana Mupenzi, died in a crash involving three vehicles just east of Garden City Airport on June 8.

 

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol (KHP), the crashed occurred at 3:20 p.m. on US-50 highway mile marker 80.6 eastbound.

 

The KHP said a 2012 Ford Edge drove left of center and side-swiped a 2009 Chevy Traverse, causing the Traverse to crash into a westbound ditch.

 

The Ford Edge bounced off the Traverse, striking a 2011 Toyota Tacoma, driver side to driver side.

 

Both vehicles came to rest on the westbound shoulder.

 

Plliana Mupenzi was one of three passengers in the Traverse.

 

The other people involved were taken to St. Catherine Hospital with minor injuries.
