Third child dies after Franklin County crash
OTTAWA — The Kansas Highway Patrol says a third child has died after a crash in Franklin County earlier this week.
The patrol says 12-year-old Elle Bowden, of Wellsville, died Friday morning. She was injured Monday night in a two-vehicle collision 5 miles east of Ottawa.
Two other children, 11-year-old Briana Sobba and 3-year-old Becham Klemen, both of Wellsville, died in the accident.
The children and a 6-year-old girl were all in a vehicle driven by 31-year-old Clytie Bowden. The patrol says she failed to yield to another vehicle and they collided in an intersection. Bowden and the 6-year-old were hospitalized in critical condition.
The 40-year-old driver of the other vehicle was also hospitalized.
