Weekend wreck leaves two injured

(KAIR)--Distracted driving is being blamed for a Saturday afternoon Atchison County crash that sent two to the hospital.

According to a report from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, it happened on U.S. Highway 73, near Osage Road, when an eastbound vehicle, driven by 20-year-old Effingham resident Mallory Eckert, crossed into the westbound lane. That caused her vehicle to crash head-on with a van, driven by 25-year-old Leavenworth resident Lonnie Marie Folsom.

Eckert, whose injuries included a broken leg, was flown by LifeNet helicopter to Mosaic Life Care, in Saint Joseph, Missouri, for treatment.

Folsom, who incurred neck pain, was also treated at Mosaic.

Laurie, in the report, said Eckert stated she was distracted by using her phone at the time of the wreck, which was reported minutes after 2:00.
