A pregnant woman was taken to the hospital with possible injuries Monday after the car she was driving was hit by another car at 4:33 p.m. at 16th and Morton. Ashley Davis, 27, complained of head and neck pain and was transported to The University of Kansas Health Care Systems Great Bend Campus by Great Bend Fire Department Ambulance.
According to the Great Bend Police Department, Davis was driving southbound Toyota Camry on Morton. As she entered the intersection she saw the westbound BMW driven by Cecilia Barrios Ramirez, 27, run the stop sign.
Ramirez said she dropped her wallet and as she reached down to pick it up the cars collided. She was not injured.
There was heavy damage to the driver’s side rear door of the Camry and front-end damage to the BMW. The Camry was towed.
The GBPD also released information Tuesday on two injury crashes reported Saturday. None of the drivers ended up going to the hospital, however.
At 7:27 p.m. at Broadway and McKinley, a Ford Fusion driven by Kristine Myers, 30, collided with a Kia Sorento driven by Jewell Radke, 61. Radke was northbound on McKinley; Myers said she was distracted by her backseat passengers and the sun was blinding her as she traveled west on Broadway. She was cited for running a red light and inattentive driving.
The Fusion had major front-end damage and the front airbags deployed, while the Kia sustained minor damage to the right doors.
A second crash was reported at 8:57 p.m. Saturday at 29th and Williams.
Diann Jean, 46, was driving a Dodge Ram north in the 2800 block of Williams when she collided with a parked car and a tree at 2900 Williams St. The truck had disabling damage. Jean was arrested for driving under the influence, improper driving on a laned roadway and illegal transportation of liquor (for multiple open alcohol containers allegedly seen on the front floor of the Dodge). She was released from the Barton County Jail that day after posting a $1,000 surety bond.
All drivers were from Great Bend.
