HOISINGTON — Two injuries were reported Wednesday after a motorist in a Jeep pulled in front of a Peterbilt semitrailer at 12:35 p.m. at NE 10 Ave. and NE 100 Road, near Hoisington.
The Barton County Sheriff’s Office reports the 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo Jeep was driven by Addison Westoff, 15, and was carrying passengers Elsi Miller, 15, and Madison Otter, 15, all of Great Bend. The 2007 Peterbilt driven by Scott Mitchell, 28, of Great Bend, was westbound on NE 100 Ave. when the Jeep entered the intersection.
The Jeep was hit on the passenger side and shoved into the south ditch. The Peterbilt then overturned and came to rest on its side, partially in the north ditch and partially on NE 100 Road.
Miller was the front-seat passenger in the Jeep and had to be extricated from the vehicle by Hoisington EMS and Fire. She and Mitchell were transported to Clara Barton Hospital in Hoisington for treatment of injuries.
Westoff was cited for failure to yield right of way and Otter was cited for not wearing a seat belt.
The BCSO was also assisted by the Hoisington Police Department and Kansas Highway Patrol.
