Independence Woman Dies in Friday Morning Accident

On Friday morning, just after 9:30 a.m., emergency personnel were dispatched just east of the US 400, US 69 and County Road Old Highway 96 Junction, in eastern Cherokee County. 

A westbound 2006 Dodge Caravan left the roadway, struck a guardrail and entered into Little Shawnee Creek, submerging the vehicle.

The driver, identified as Kathleen Goodman, 52 of Independence, Kansas, was found deceased inside the vehicle.

The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.  It is not known at this time, what caused Mrs. Goodman to leave the roadway.
