Louisburg, Kansas, High School Teacher Dies in Car Crash


A beloved business and computer teacher a Louisburg High School was killed yesterday afternoon in a Highway 68 car accident. The 67-year-old Kansas woman was a longtime high school teacher and had planned to retire at the end of this school year after 29 years of teaching.

Authorities say that the fatal car accident happened because the teacher's SUV was rear-ended by a 23-year-old man from Osawatomie, Kansas. The teacher had been stopped in a row of vehicles which were waiting for a bus to unload its passengers. It is unclear how many school children witnessed this severe crash or whether the impact forced the teacher's car into the cars in front of her.

The impact of the crash was so severe that the teacher was declared dead at the scene. Emergency personnel treated the 23-year-old at the crash site and released him.

The crash remains under investigation and it is unclear what caused the young driver to rear-end the teacher. Common causes of similar accidents include distracted and intoxicated driving.

In response to losing this veteran teacher, school officials decided to open the school building to the community for a group mourning session. KMBC reports that approximately 200 people had gathered by Wednesday evening to remember the teacher. Grief counselors will be available to students today and finals that were scheduled today have been postponed.
