A 12-year-old girl had to be transferred to a Wichita hospital after the SUV she was riding in Monday jumped a curb and hit a house and another vehicle.

The accident happened Memorial Day evening, according to a statement released earlier today by Liberal Police Capt. Pat McClurg.

“On Monday … at about 5:11 p.m., emergency responders were dispatched to an injury accident in the 700 block of North Pershing Avenue,” McClurg noted. “A vehicle had collided with a house.”

McClurg reported a 2006 Dodge Durango driven by a 23-year-old female was traveling south on Pershing Avenue.

“The vehicle left the roadway and collided with a house. The vehicle also struck a 2004 Ford F-150 that was parked in the driveway,” he noted.

“A 12-year-old female passenger in the Durango was transported to Southwest Medical Center by Seward County EMS,” McClurg continued. “She was later transported to a Wichita hospital for further care.”

A 16-year-old female and the driver were both transported to SWMC by a private vehicle for treatment, according to McClurg’s report.

“The cause of the accident is still under investigation,” he added.
