Wednesday morning fatal wreck in Cowley County involved taxi company vehicle

Authorities say the driver of a taxi company’s minivan veered into oncoming traffic on a Kansas highway and killed another motorist.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the crash happened around 6:50 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. 160 on the eastern edge of Winfield. The victim was identified as 39-year-old Joshua Mosqueda. He was behind the wheel of the car that was hit.

Cowley County Sheriff David Falletti said in a news release that the minivan was owned by Best Cabs Inc. of Wichita. The release says the van’s driver was taken to a hospital for unknown injuries.

Company owner Timothy Armbrust said he couldn’t immediately comment because he is still trying to determine what happened.

Winfield is about 35 miles south of Wichita.
