Two-Vehicle Accident Injures Three

Three people were transported to the hospital after an accident on K-4 near I-135 on Friday.

Saline County Undersheriff Brent Melander tells KSAL News that at 6:20 a.m., a 23-year-old woman from Salina driving a 2020 Jeep Renegade north on K-4 turned left and pulled in front of a 2003 Mercury Marquis. The two vehicles collided.

The 21-year-old man driving the Marquis and a 52-year-old male passenger, both from Rio Grande, Texas, were transported to the hospital by EMS. The driver of the Jeep was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle. The extent of the injuries were not disclosed.

In the process of the accident, the Marquis also hit a light pole and knocked it over.

The woman driving the Jeep was cited for failure to yield. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
