Police have identified the fatality victim of a traffic accident in south-west Wichita just before 5:00 Monday afternoon in the area of Pawnee and Maize Road. 

A police statement says 30 year-old Elissa Warns-Branson of Wichita was found trapped in a 2013 Gray Hyundai and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Police say a 2016 red Dodge truck driven by a 55 year-old man was going North on Maize road at a high rate of speed and clipped a Sierra truck also going North, then rear-ended Warn-Bransons car. His truck then flipped and landed on its roof. He received non life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Sierra was not injured. 

Investigators believe a medical condition may be the cause of the accident. This was the 28th traffic fatality of the year.
