traffic crash

(KNZA)--An early Monday evening two-vehicle Jefferson County wreck sent a Meriden teenager to the hospital.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the wreck was reported shortly after 5:30 at the intersection of K-4 Highway and Palmberg Street on the south side of Meriden.

According to the KHP report, a pickup truck driven by 16-year-old Sophie Waters was stopped at a stop sign when she pulled out in front of a southbound semi truck on K-4 and was t-boned by the semi. The impact caused her vehicle to overturn.

Waters, who was not wearing a seat belt, was transported to a Topeka hospital for the treatment of suspected minor injuries.

The semi driver, from Dodge City, was not hurt.
