Five people were injured in a three-vehicle accident Saturday afternoon in Sublette.
The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 2008 GMC passenger vehicle was southbound on U.S. Highway 83 when it approached the U.S. Highway 56 intersection in Sublette.
The KHP then said the GMC, driven by 85-year-old Raymon Bernice Reynolds of Dalhart, Texas, failed to stop at the stop sign and struck a second vehicle, a 2004 passenger vehicle, driven by Paula Jean Rathbun, 65, of Plainville.
Both the Buick and GMC continued southbound into the northbound lanes, and later, both vehicles struck a third, a 2009 Pontiac passenger vehicle, which was stopped in the northbound lane of the U.S-83/U.S.-56 intersection.
The driver of the Pontiac, 14-year-old Kacie Moree of Liberal, was not injured in the accident. However, both Reynolds and Rathbun were injured. Reynolds was transferred to Southwest Medical Center in Liberal, while Rathbun was taken to Satanta District Hospital.
Passengers in the three vehicles were also injured. Ann Flamm Reynolds, 82, of Dalhart was taken to SWMC with injuries, while Mark Douglas Rathbun, 54, of Plainville was taken to SDH. Keeley A. Blackwood, 38, of Liberal was taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
Two other passengers in the Pontiac, Braxon Blackwood, age 7, of Liberal and Sebastian Lopez, age 7, also of Liberal, were not hurt in the wreck.
The KHP reports that seat belts were equipped and in use in all vehicles.
