GIRARD — A Bourbon County woman is dead following a single-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Kathleen K. Kalm, 78, of Garland, was traveling east on Kansas Highway 47 about nine miles west of Girard, when her 2006 Pontiac Vibe crossed the centerline, and drove off the road into the north ditch. Her car then “vaulted inot the air and struck a culvert” before crashing through a barbed wire fence and overturning. The car came to rest upright facing southeast.
No one else was in the vehicle and Kalm was wearing a seatbelt.
The cause of the wreck remains under investigation.
