An Ellsworth woman died in a two-vehicle accident Tuesday at the Hedville Road intersection with Interstate 70 in Saline County.
Mary A. Donley, 82, was taken to Carlson-Geisendorf Funeral Home in Salina. The other driver, 18-year-old Austin Shane Nelson, 18, of Salina, was not injured. Both were wearing seat belts.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol online crash logs, Nelson was in a southbound Ford truck on Hedville Road at 8 a.m. Donley was exiting from eastbound I-70 in a Ford van but attempted to get back onto the Interstate and pulled out in front of Nelson, whose truck struck the van on the driver’s side.
