(KNZA)--An early Wednesday afternoon two-vehicle wreck in Hiawatha sent two Nebraska residents to the hospital.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says it happened at the intersection of Oregon and North 9th Streets shortly before 1:00.

The Patrol reports a SUV driven by 59-year-old Jacqueline Findley, of Broken Bow, was slowing or stopped, waiting for a vehicle in front to turn, when her vehicle was struck in the rear by a westbound pickup truck driven by 27-year-old Arthur Wagoner, of Fairview.

Findley and a passenger in her vehicle, 55-year-old Catherine Dehart, of Berwyn, Nebraska, were both transported to Amberwell Health, in Hiawatha, for the treatment of suspected minor injuries.

Wagoner and a passenger in his vehicle, 28-year-old Michael Muse, of Robinson, were not hurt.
