Two injured in 3-vehicle Jeff Co wreck

traffic crash

(KNZA)--A Friday evening three-vehicle Jefferson County wreck sent two people to the hospital.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the wreck occurred on U.S. 24 Highway at Oak Road, about a half mile east of Perry.

According to the Patrol report, 58-year-old Donna Worthington, of Perry, was eastbound when she slowed to make a turn onto Oak Road and her car was rear-ended by an eastbound SUV driven by 32-year-old Kelsey Pepin, of Olathe. The impact caused Worthington's vehicle to go left of center and strike a westbound vehicle driven by 18-year-old Wyatt Roberts, of Oskaloosa, head-on.

Roberts and Worthington were both transported to a Topeka hospital with suspected minor injuries.

Pepin was not hurt.

There was a juvenile passenger in the Roberts vehicle, but no information is being released on the juvenile because of their age.

The Patrol says all three drivers were wearing seat belts when the wreck occurred around 9:30 Friday night.
