Bentley Man Dies In Wreck
A 31-year-old Sedgwick County man was killed Saturday evening (April 3, 1994) in a single-vehicle accident about 3 miles south of Halstead on Halstead Road, authorities said. The man, a resident of Bentley, had not been wearing his seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle when it overturned in a ditch, said Deputy Wayne Gehrer of the Harvey County Sheriff’s Department. Gehrer refused to comment on whether alcohol had been involved. The accident occurred at about 7:20 p.m. and the victim died within an hour at Halstead Hospital, where he’d been transported by ambulance. The man’s identity was still being withheld Sunday night while authorities located family members. (The Hutchinson News, Hutchinson, Kansas. April 4, 1994. Page 21).
