• Daily Leader staff report

 

Officials with the Stevens County Sheriff’s Department reported only minor injuries to a Hugoton youth following a two-vehicle accident Friday, according to a report from the agency.

Around 7:30 Friday morning, undersheriff Rex Evans and sheriff Ted Heaton investigated the wreck about three miles east of Hugoton on Kansas Highway 51.

Kristen Schnittker, 19, of Hugoton, was driving a 2005 Chevy Malibu east when it collided with the rear of a USD 210 school bus, driven by Beverly Crane, 65, also of Hugoton.

The sheriff’s report noted the bus was turning left into a private driveway at the time of the accident. Heaton said a contributing factor to the accident was the sun shining in Schnittker’s eyes.

Schnittker was transported to Stevens County Hospital for minor injuries. There were no injuries to Crane or any of the students on the bus.
