A woman from Virginia was hurt in a single-vehicle crash near Salina Monday morning.
Law enforcement and EMS were called at 10:25 to the report of a crash near the Interstate 70 / Interstate 135 junction. First responders discovered an SUV on its top in the I 70 median.
Kansas Highway Patrol Troopers told KSAL News at the scene that the SUV was heading west. The driver, identified as 52-year-old Michelle Gunzelman from Ruckersville, Virginia, swerved when a semi in front of her slowed down. The SUV veered into the median, and rolled onto its top.
Gunzelman was transported by EMS to the hospital in Salina with non-life threatening injuries. Two dogs that were in the SUV with her were transported by a sheriff deputy to the animal shelter. Neither dog appeared to be seriously injured.
The crash happened just east of the junction of the two interstates. Traffic was slowed to one lane as first responders worked the scene.
