A law enforcement SUV working the scene of a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 70 early Thursday morning in Dickinson County became part of a second crash when a passing vehicle hit it, and rolled.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, the initial crash happened when a car headed west crossed the median, and crashed into a car that was headed east.
Two people from Tennesse that were in the car that veered across the median were transported to Geary Community Hospital.
As emergency responders were on the scene, a second crash occurred. A van struck from behind an unoccupied Dickinson County Sheriff Office SUV that was parked at the scene with its lights activated. The van then rolled.
The driver of the van, 79-year-old Thomas Anderson from McPherson, was transported to Geary Community hospital.
The crashes happened on I 70 in the area of milepost 281, near Enterprise in Dickinson County.
