Car Hits Highway Patrol SUV

KSAL StaffMay 22, 2016

A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper avoided injury after a car hit his parked patrol vehicle while he was helping a disabled motorist on a busy interstate highway.

The trooper had pulled over north of the Moundridge exit on Interstate 135 around 1:30 p.m. Sunday when a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed hit his patrol car.

Highway Patrol spokesman Ben Gardner says the disabled car was parked in the median between the northbound and southbound lanes. A northbound car that was changing lanes clipped the trooper’s vehicle, sending it into the disabled car, which then struck another vehicle.

Gardner says the trooper had to jump out of the way of the impending crash.

Two people in the disabled vehicle suffered minor injuries.
