80-year-old Utah man hurt in accident, car fire on I-70

February 12, 2012


An 80-year-old Utah man was hurt in an accident on Interstate 70 between Topeka and Lawrence, near milepost 191, at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. He was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Kansas Turnpike Authority Lt. John Lehnherr said.

The driver of the car, the man’s son, lost control and hit the barrier after some kind of mechanical malfunction, Lehnherr said. Both the driver and passenger got out of the car before an engine fire destroyed it; the fire backed up I-70.
