A Topeka man in a Ford pickup hit Sondgeroth's Honda Civic from behind when she slowed down in a construction zone. Sondgeroth, 48, then hit the Ford Explorer in front of her, according to police reports. A passenger in her car, Michael Sondgeroth, was admitted to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. He was in fair condition Saturday night. Identities of the children in the photo were not available.
