Platte County authorities have identified a 70-year-old woman killed Friday in a single-vehicle wreck north of Waldron as Mary Manthe of Leavenworth.
The wreck occurred when a 2012 Toyota Scion traveling west on Jones-Meyer Road near Baker Ridge Circle left the road, became airborne and struck a large tree, according to the sheriff’s office.
Manthe died at the scene.
The Scion’s driver, David Folks-Manthe, also of Leavenworth, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
