MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Investigators say a 19-year-old northeast Kansas woman killed in a car accident near Manhattan was texting while driving.

Riley County Police director Brad Schoen says Ashley Umscheid, of Wheaton, died after the crash last weekend.

Umscheid was driving her 1995 Ford Ranger on Kansas 18, when she entered the median, overcorrected and flipped the vehicle.

Funeral services are planned for Saturday morning at New Hope Lutheran Church in Onaga.
