Updated: Woman dies as car plows into vision center at south-central Kansas Walmart

A 69-year-old Newton woman died when she had a medical emergency and her car drove into the vision center at Walmart in Newton just before noon Friday.

Wanda Hoyle was pronounced dead at the scene.

The car left a hole in the side of the building. No one inside was injured, and the Walmart was evacuated.

A news release said Newton code enforcement “has ordered the building to remain closed until the building can be evaluated by a structural engineer.”
