Three injured in K-10 wreck

Three people were transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital Friday morning after a two-car collision on Kansas Highway 10.

Lorene M. Davison, 74, Lawrence, was admitted and in good condition Friday afternoon, a nursing supervisor said.

Treated and released were Esther E. Vannucchi, 24, and Diane Bennett, 27, both of Lawrence, the supervisor said.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 1989 Ford Taurus driven by Vannucchi struck a 2002 Toyota broadside driven by Davison. Bennett was a passenger riding with Vannucchi, the report said.

The Taurus was eastbound on K-10, the report said. The Toyota had been stopped on East 1600 Road at the K-10 intersection just outside the city limits, the patrol reported. The Toyota had started across K-10 when it was struck, the report said.
