Wreck near Beto Junction Injures 5

Five people were taken to the hospital following an accident in Coffey County Friday afternoon.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says it happened on Highway 75, just south of the I-35 junction.

KHP says 18-year old Rachel Austin of Hartford was trying to make a left turn out of the Beto Junction business parking lot and was hit by 64-year old Floyd Wheeler of Neodesha, who was headed north on 75. Wheeler's vehicle then hit a southbound semi, that was stopped waiting to turn.

Austin and two passengers in her vehicle, 16-year old Devon Moore and 23-year old Blake Struttman, as well as Wheeler and his passenger, 62-year old Hilda Wheeler, were taken to the hospital. Their injuries don't appear to be life threatening.

The driver of the semi, 63-year old David Cramer of Garrison, North Dakota, and his passenger, 55-year old Dianne Cramer, were not injured.
