A teenager was killed, and several others were injured in a west Wichita crash that happened near 9th Street and Tyler just before noon Wednesday.

Police say the victim is Aryana Lay, 14, of Wichita.

Investigators say her 38-year-old father was driving their car south on Tyler at a high rate of speed. He lost control and their car slammed into two pickups that were headed north on Tyler.

The teenager died at the scene. Her father was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The drivers of the pickups had minor injuries.

Even though police believe speed was a factor in the crash, they say the case remains under investigation.

USD 259 says Lay attended Education Imagine Academy.
