A 23-year-old Spring Hill woman was taken to an Olathe hospital Thursday evening after a two-vehicle accident east of Baldwin City on U.S. Highway 56.
According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, the crash happened at 7 p.m. when the driver of a 1994 Buick car tried to make a U-turn on U.S. Highway 56 at its intersection with Kansas Highway 33, which is about three miles north of Wellsville.
The Buick, driven by 18-year-old Richard Hargett of Wellsville, turned in front of a 2004 Saturn Ion, driven by 23-year-old Amber Nichole Bates. Bates’ car then struck the Buick.
Bates was taken to Olathe Medical Center, where she was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said. Hargett was listed as injured but declined to be taken to the hospital. Both drivers wore their seat belts, according to the report.
