Harveyville woman killed in rollover wreck

An act of driver courtesy apparently started an accident that killed a Harveyville woman and injured a Harveyville man east of Overbrook on Sunday.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 69-year-old George Tomlinson III was westbound on U.S. Highway 56 about six miles east of Overbrook when the crash happened around 2:30 pm. Tomlinson was giving room to two eastbound vehicles which were hugging the center line, but his truck's side wheels dropped off the road. The vehicle went into a ditch, went airborne and flipped.

Tomlinson's passenger, Iva Tomlinson, was killed in the wreck. Tomlinson was taken to KU Medical Center in Kansas City. The hospital has not released his condition.
