Injury accident

A Tonganoxie High School student was injured in a two-vehicle accident about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday on Kansas Highway 32 about 6 miles west of Linwood.

Molly O’Hagan, 17, Tonganoxie, was driving a 2001 Ford truck west on K-32 and attempting to make a left-hand turn onto 246th Street when a 2002 Kenworth truck driven by Raymond P. Mosher, 40, Topeka, tried to pass her on the left and struck her vehicle, Kansas Highway Patrol reports said. Mosher also was headed west behind O’Hagan and was pulling a trailer.

Reports said O’Hagan was taken to Kansas University Hospital. A hospital official there said Thursday he didn’t have record of her being a patient.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts, reports said.

Why was he trying to pass on the left while she was making a left-hand turn? I wonder, were turn signals in proper use?

I hope everyone is okay.

Lord knows, yes they were, and yes they will be. The reputation of Hamm's drivers speak for themselves and so does their record with the DOT. Funny... the absence of their presence on 32 last couple days has been interesting.
