Two women were sent to the hospital after their car crashed into another Thursday afternoon in north Liberal, according to a press relese from Liberal Police Lt. Dan Yorio.
“On Thursday … at about 1:50 p.m., emergency responders were dispatched to an injury accident at the intersection of 15th Street and Kansas Avenue involving two vehicles,” Yorio reported. “Responding officers found that a blue 2000 Chevy Malibu, driven by a 28-year-old male, collided with a silver 2008 Ford Focus driven by a 60-year-old female.
“The Focus also had a 62-year-old female passenger,” he added.
Both these women were transported to Southwest Medical Center by ambulance, according to Yorio.
“During the investigation, officers learned that the Malibu was southbound on Kansas Avenue and attempted to make a left turn onto Eastbound 15th street,” Yorio noted. “The Focus, which was northbound on Kansas Avenue, attempted to avoid the collision, however, it was unable to stop, and the vehicles collided.”
The driver of the Chevy Malibu remained at the scene, according to Yorio.
