Woman injured in one-vehicle rollover

October 26, 2012


A 31-year-old Topeka woman was injured in a one-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 40 this morning, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office reported.

Heidi Burton was eastbound when her vehicle crossed the center line and hit a culvert on the north side of the road and overturned. She was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Sgt. Steve Lewis said. The accident occurred around 5 a.m.

Me too. That is a really awful drive, especially when it's dark.

How can you publish the name of an accident victim - which is all that has been actually REPORTED and allow posters to claim she was drunk - ? You don't print the names of people who have been arrested, but this is okay??

I don't know anything about what happened, nor do I know the victim, but I am curious...

My first thought when I read the story was since it is late October she might have swerved to miss a deer...
