High winds created problems for motorists Saturday morning, the Barton County Sheriff’s Office reports. At 10:26 a.m., a motorist reported as she was going over an overpass on K-156 at East K-4, a vehicle lost a cargo trailer, which was in the ditch. Kansas Highway Patrol responded.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m., a Dodge Charger hit a sign post on NW 90 Road and NW 40 Ave. The motorist said the wind blew her car off the road, causing her to hit a Yield sign. The sign was still standing and the car was driveable, but an accident report was taken.
