The single car crash happened Wednesday night (Dec. 26) just after 7 PM in the 6900 block of Anderson Avenue, one mile south of the town of Keats.

Hallie Oltsmanns, of Keats, swerved to miss a deer and her 2007 Dodge Dakota went off the road and struck a light pole.

Oltsmanns was taken to Mercy Regional Health Center in Manhattan with back pain.

A passenger in the car, one-year-old Keaton Spencer, was airlifted to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka with a possible head injury.

The child is listed in fair condition at the hospital.
