Three injured following three vehicle crash

(KAIR)--Details are released regarding a 3-vehicle, Monday night crash, just west of the Atchison city limits, that left three Atchison County residents injured.

A release from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie says it happened around 9:00 that night, in the 12000 block of U.S. Highway 73, when an eastbound pickup truck, driven by 72-year-old Dr. John Eplee, of Atchison, crossed the center line and struck a westbound pickup truck, driven by 17-year-old Deryck Claxton, of Atchison, along with a car, driven by 18-year-old Quinton Claxton, of Effingham.

Both Claxtons were transported to Amberwell Atchison, by Atchison County EMS, for the treatment of what Laurie calls "minor lacerations and injuries."

Eplee was also taken to Amberwell, transported by private vehicle for the treatment of what the release identifies as "possible foot and back injuries."
