A 48-year-old Lawrence woman was injured in a rollover accident Saturday afternoon in Allen County, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

The accident report said Azita Ahosseini was driving a 1998 Toyota Camry south on U.S. Highway 169 at 12:30 p.m. when the vehicle began to fishtail for an unknown reason. The car entered the west ditch, spun clockwise, hit a culvert stream bed, fell backwards into an embankment and then rolled once resting on its wheels.

The crash occurred 1 mile east of Iola, which is 80 miles south of Lawrence.

Ahosseini, who wore a seat belt, was injured and taken to Allen County Hospital, according to the report. Two Lawrence passengers, 52-year-old Shahram Samandi and 19-year-old Gelareh Samandi, were not injured.

"The car entered the west ditch, spun clockwise, hit a culvert stream bed, fell backwards into an embankment and then rolled once resting on its wheels" with all the occupants securely belted in place.

Otherwise, the story would have quite likely have been very different.
