(KNZA)--Three people were injured Thursday afternoon in a two-vehicle collision in Jefferson County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says it happened on K-4 Highway at Edwards Road about 4 miles south of Valley Falls.

According to the KHP report, 72-year-old James Braum, of Valley Falls, was stopped on K-4 waiting to turn left onto Edwards Road when his SUV was rear-ended by a southbound car driven by 15-year-old Grace Burch, of Valley Falls.

Burch was transported to Topeka's Stormont-Vail hospital with suspected minor injuries.

A passenger, 43-year-old Alicia Burch, of Valley Falls, was transported to Stormont-Vail with suspected serious injuries.

Another passenger, 20-year-old Gena Burch, of Valley Falls, was taken to the hospital with suspected minor injuries.

The Patrol says another juvenile was also present in the vehicle, but no information was released on that individual because of their age.

Braum was not hurt.

The Patrol says all the occupants were wearing seat belts when the wreck occurred shortly before 3:00 Thursday afternoon.
