CLAY CENTER, Kansas (AP) – Two north-central Kansas residents were killed when the vehicle they were in rolled several times west of Clay Center.

The Salina Journal reports that 61-year-old Eldon Hartley and 30-year-old Kattie Hartley died in the accident Wednesday on U.S. Highway 24 four miles west of Clay Center. They were from Miltonvale.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says another woman and child were taken to an area hospital.

The patrol says the accident occurred when their vehicle left the road and entered the ditch, came back onto the road and entered the ditch again, where it rolled multiple times.

The patrol report says the child was the only person in the vehicle wearing a seatbelt.
