Victims identified in fatal crash near Derby

Sedgwick County deputies are still investigating a crash that resulted in the death of a Derby man.

69-year-old Herbert Lawrence was standing next to his disabled pickup when it was hit from behind by another pickup on 63rd Street South at Grove.   Lawrence died a short time later at a hospital.  His wive, 72-year-old Virginia Lawrence, was in the passenger seat of the pickup and she was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.   The driver of the other truck, a 35-year-old Derby man, was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Deputies said Lawrence’s pickup was in the outside lane for eastbound traffic, and the other truck was going east in the same lane when it collided with the pickup, forcing it over the curb and through a fence.
