Man Dies After Crash at Kansas International Dragway in Maize

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A hospital spokeswoman says a man has died after a crash at the Kansas International Dragway. The Wichita Eagle reports that the crash happened Sunday afternoon at the speedway in the south-central Kansas town of Maize. The victim was transported to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis in Wichita. Sharon Hurley of Via Christi says the man was in critical condition when he arrived and died less than an hour later.  A Sedgwick County dispatcher says the crash victim had participated in a racing event at the speedway. The site was featuring an event called "Import Face-off." Witness Logan Majors of Wichita said the crash happened when a car went out of control and hit a wall after crossing the finish line.
