A Grenola woman was killed Wednesday afternoon - and a Central High School student was injured - in a two-vehicle collision that occurred just west of Cambridge, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Dianna L. Langley, 47, was pronounced dead not far from the scene of the crash, which occurred on U.S. Highway 160. She was wearing a seat belt.

Langley was a passenger in a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan driven by Harvey L. Anderson, 81, Grenola. He was not injured.

Around 3:55 p.m., Anderson was driving east on 160 when he slowed for a vehicle turning south into a private drive.

Investigators said that a 1987 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by Morgan Bailey-Whiteman, 16, Cambridge, crashed into the back end of the Anderson vehicle. Bailey-Whiteman did not see the vehicle ahead of her slow down, according to the highway patrol.

She was transported to William Newton Hospital in serious condition. Her current condition was not known at the time of this report.

Bailey-Whiteman was not wearing a seat belt.

Authorities were working at two scenes as they worked the crash. The Jetta remained on the highway near the site of the crash, but the Grand Caravan was at residence in the 300 block of West Main in Cambridge.

The van made it about a mile to Cambridge before authorities were called for the report of a crash victim that was injured and not breathing. Langley died a short time later.
