Two people are killed in separate crashes in Butler County overnight.
The first happened just before midnight at Highway 77 and SW 120th Street, south of Augusta. One person, identified as 38-year-old Charles White of Douglas, was killed in that crash.
According to our news partners at KFDI, White's two daughters, ages two and three, were standing next to his body when emergency crews arrived. Both were taken to a hospital in Wichita with potentially serious injuries. They are expected to be okay.
The second crash happened near the town of Benton. A passerby called 911 after seeing the wreckage on Highway 254 east of town.
The driver of that car, identified as 18-year-old Austin Taylor of Valley Center, was thrown from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.
There were no witnesses to the crash, but authorities say the car left the roadway for some reason, then rolled several times.
