(KNZA)--A Monday morning three-vehicle Brown County wreck sent two people to the hospital.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says it happened around 9:30 at the intersection of U.S. 36 and U.S. 75 Highways, just west of the U.S. 75 off-ramp, near Fairview.

According to the Patrol report, a semi truck was westbound on U.S. 36 when an eastbound pickup truck driven by 71-year-old Lyle Broxterman, of Fairview, struck the oversized load that was in the eastbound lane. After impact, the pickup struck a SUV.

Broxterman was transported to Topeka's Stormont-Vail Hospital for the treatment of suspected serious injuries.

The driver of the SUV, 28-year-old Jada Quarles, of Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, was transported to Hiawatha's Amberwell Health for the treatment of suspected minor injuries.

The semi driver, 49-year-old Carlo Rea, of Thermopolis, Wyoming, was not hurt.

The Patrol says all three drivers were wearing seat belts when the wreck occurred.
