An Otis woman was injured Tuesday evening on a Barton County road, 4 miles north and 3 miles west of Galatia.
Kansas Highway Patrol reports the accident occurred at 6:24 p.m. Jean Ellen Edwards, 59, was in a Kia Soul driving south on 176th St., at a rate of speed that was too great for road conditions, when she attempted to turn left on NW 230 Road. The sport utility vehicle entered the ditch and eventually came to rest in a field. She was wearing a seat belt.
Edwards was taken to Clara Barton Hospital in Hoisington with undetermined injuries. The Kia was removed by Doonan’s to a tow lot.
