TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two people are in the hospital with serious injuries following a three-vehicle collision in western Jackson County Monday evening.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said the crash happened just after 5 p.m. east of B. Road on K-16 Highway in rural Havensville.

Sheriff Tim Morse said a minivan was heading east on K-16 when it crossed the center line and collided with a westbound Dodge pickup.

They identified Jacob Smith, 38, of Cassvile, Missouri as the driver of the minivan. He was flown to a Topeka hospital with critical injuries.

The pickup’s driver, James Moore, 74, of Effingham was also taken to a Topeka hospital with what authorities are calling “debilitating injuries.”

Three other people inside the pickup refused treatment.

Authorities said a third vehicle was also involved in the collision. The driver and his passenger were not injured.
