May 17, 2002


A Lenexa woman was injured when the car she was driving slid out of control on wet pavement Friday morning on Kansas Highway 10, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

Stephanie A. Benedict, 19, was taken by ambulance to Overland Park Regional Medical Center where she was in serious condition Friday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

About 7 a.m. Benedict was driving a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer eastbound on K-10 near the Johnson County line when it left the highway and crossed the median strip, the Highway Patrol said.

The Blazer then collided with a westbound 1989 Pontiac Sunbird driven by James P. Campbell, McLouth, 21. Campbell was not injured.
