After Tuesday accident on Kansas Turnpike, car ends up on embankment of rocks

January 11, 2012


A car left the Kansas Turnpike Tuesday and came to rest on an embankment of rocks after the driver had an apparent seizure, a dispatcher for the Kansas Turnpike Authority said on Wednesday.

The driver was headed east on Interstate 70 around milepost 194 shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday when the accident occurred.

A second, two-car accident, occurred shortly after, possibly as a result of drivers looking at the original accident.

No one received serious injuries as a result of the accidents, the dispatcher said.

I saw this wreck - how the heck did it end up way up there? Too bad there aren't any photos with this story. We thought the car had to have come down from up above.

Um, did you ever think that he might have been trying to slow down so that he could get out of his car and help? Way to be sensitive to the Good Samaritan - guess there's no such thing any more.

Driver A may have been slowing down in order to pull over and provide assistance, but that doesn't excuse driver B for not paying attention to the road in front of them
