(KNZA)--A Hiawatha woman was injured Saturday morning in two-vehicle Brown County wreck, east of Horton.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the wreck happened shortly before 8:00 on U.S. 73 Highway, north of Nighthawk Road.

According to the KHP report, 58-year-old Charlotte VanDiver was eastbound when her Buick LeSabre struck the rear of a John Deere tractor and came to rest in the north ditch.  

VanDiver was transported to Amberwell Hospital, in Hiawatha, with suspected serious injuries.

The driver of the tractor, 55-year-old Horton resident Timothy Lehew, was not hurt.

The Patrol says Vandiver, who was alone in her vehicle, was buckled up when the wreck occurred.
