Sideswipe Collision Near Seneca, Kansas, Injures One

BEATRICE – A sideswipe collision in northeast Kansas Sunday, sent an Axtell, Kansas woman to the hospital.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the collision happened on U.S. Highway 36 at about 11:30 p.m, nearly two miles west of Seneca.

Authorities say a car driven by 19-year-old Marrissa Slone, of Axtell was eastbound approaching at high speed another car in front of her, also traveling east.

When Slone moved to the westbound lane, the K-H-P says her car struck a car driven by 48-year-old Jerry Birdsley, of Centralia, on the left rear corner.  The impact caused Slone’s car to go off the north side of the highway and into the ditch, where it rolled onto its side.

Slone suffered a possible injury and was taken to the Seneca Hospital.  Birdsley was not hurt.
