Four people were injured when a vehicle crossed the center line and collided with another vehicle Thursday afternoon in rural Ellsworth County.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, at just before 2:30 p.m., a 2014 Chevy Equinox driven by 71-year-old Judy Fuller of Ellsworth was westbound on K-140 about 8 miles east of Ellsworth when, for unspecified reasons, it crossed the center line and struck a 2009 Ford Escape driven by 78-year-old Lyle Dunning of Plainville.
Both drivers were transported to Salina Regional Health Center with what were believed to be serious injuries. KHP also reported passengers in both vehicles, 82-year-old Alvin Fuller of Ellsworth in the Equinox, and 78-year-old Nancy Dunning of Plainville in the Escape, were also injured in the crash. Both were also transported to Salina Regional Health center with what KHP believed were serious injuries.
