A Harveyville, Kan., woman died Saturday in a one-car wreck on U.S. 56 in western Douglas County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said Iva A. Tomlinson, 63, was the passenger of a pickup truck that drifted too far to the side of the two-lane highway to avoid oncoming vehicles hugging the center line.

The pickup’s side wheels dropped off the road and the truck went into a ditch, flew over an access culvert and flipped, killing Tomlinson. The accident occurred about 2:30 p.m., and both occupants of the pickup were wearing seat belts.

The driver was taken to KU Medical Center to be treated for injuries.
