Wednesday wrecks injure two in Atchison Co

(KAIR)--Two separate Atchison County wrecks Wednesday sent two to the hospital.

According to a report from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, one of the two crashes sent an out-of-area woman to the hospital.

29-year-old Darrin Schmidt, of Winchester, was the driver of a pickup truck, southbound on Jewell Road, coming from 286th Road, that stopped at the stop sign at U.S. Highway 73. As he attempted to cross the highway, Laurie says Schmidt's truck was struck by a car, eastbound on the highway, driven by 76-year-old Margaret Elliot, of Eudora, Kansas.
She was transported to Amberwell Atchison, by Atchison County EMS, for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Schmidt was not hurt, but was cited for failure to yield.

The other wreck happened around 4:00 Wednesday afternoon, when a Lancaster teenager's Camaro ran off the road and rolled over.

Laurie says Landon Burge was westbound on 286th Road, between Graham and Greely, when the car went off the road, and appeared to have rolled over before stopping in a corn field, north of 286th Road.

Burge was transported to Amberwell Atchison, by Atchison County EMS, with unknown injuries.
