We now know the name of the third man injured in a one vehicle accident that claimed the life of a 37-year-old Hutchinson man. But the name is about all we know. He was identified as Marlin Brown. He along with 31-year-old Keith Massey of Kansas City was both critically injured in the crash and both flown to a Wichita hospital. Brown apparently had no I-D in him when police arrived at the scene.
Killed was Courtney Morgan after the crash at 1st & Hendricks and the vehicle rolled several times. He was taken by EMS to Hutchinson Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Police says around 9:30 p-m Friday night, a police officer on routine patrol in the 100 block of West 1st, observed a white KIA Sorrento traveling west bound at a high rate of speed. The officer turned in behind the vehicle and tried to catch up, but quickly lost the vehicle after it blacked out.
As the officer continued to check the area for the vehicle, dispatch was advised by a citizen of an injury accident at 1st & Hendricks. Upon officers arrival at that location, they discovered that the vehicle that they were looking for had failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway colliding with a short concrete structure and then rolling several times into a field west of that intersection.
