Four Hurt In Head-On Crash

KSAL Staff - August 16, 2013 5:35 pm

Four people are hurt in a head-on crash east of Salina Friday afternoon.

Saline County Sheriff Deputy Jeremy Trostle tells KSAL News that a passenger car was headed east on Magnolia. The driver activated his turn signal, and went to make a left hand turn to head north on Simpson Road.  He swerved into the lane of oncoming traffic as he went to make the turn and crashed head-on into an oncoming pickup truck.

Both drivers and a single passenger in each vehicle were hurt.  All four were were tranported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center with what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

Trostle says that neither driver was buckled up, but both passengers were.

The crash happened just after 3:30 Friday afternoon.

Just goes to show you being buckled up really does not matter. Passing laws requiring to do so violates our freedom of life.

There is not much traffic out there. Bet cell phone usuage had something to do with it. Just maybe that should be reported instead of seatbelt usuage.

I was going to my brothers house on Saturday a little after 5 pm when I ran into 3/4 of the sheriff’s department out there investigating the crash. The old has been sheriff was not in sight but they had more people out there than was needed. They themselves could have caused and accident. Its amazing with all the crime in the county they could put that many people out there a day after the accident.

I saw that also was as probably many county residents did that travel that road and was very surprised all that was not done on the day of the accident right when it happened. I also felt having that many cars and personel out there was a big waste and time of manpower when more important things probably needed their attention. Once again the sheriff’s department dropped the ball. If they put that much time into solving crime cases maybe just maybe they would catch more of the bad guys.
