The Kansas Highway Patrol has identified a 33-year-old woman, a 4-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy, all from Eudora, as the three people injured in the rollover accident this afternoon on Kansas Highway 10 east about two miles east of Lawrence.
Maria Cobian was driving her 2000 Toyota 4Runner at 1:52 p.m. in the westbound lanes when she swerved to the north shoulder and back across both lanes of traffic and onto the south shoulder near the median, according to the accident report.
She tried to steer the vehicle back to normal, but it rolled several times and stopped on its top in the north ditch.
The two children, Luis Avila, 11, and Fatima Avila, 4, wore their seat belts, but troopers were unsure if Cobian wore one. Cobian was flown by a LifeNet helicopter to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan.
Fatima was flown by a LifeNet Helicopter to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., and Luis was taken there by an ambulance. Emergency responders told dispatchers that the two flown by helicopter were in critical condition and that Luis Avila suffered nonlife-threatening injuries.
