TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Riley County Police Department said no serious injuries were reported in a rollover crash Tuesday evening.

They said it happened just before 5:30 p.m. near the intersection of Tuttle Creek Blvd. and W. 59th Ave.

RCPD said a Ford truck and GMC truck were both headed east on Tuttle Creek Blvd., when the Ford truck stopped to make a left turn onto W. 59th. They said the driver of the GMC truck did not notice the Ford truck stopped and crossed into oncoming traffic to avoid hitting it. The vehicle then went back into the eastbound lanes to avoid the oncoming traffic and hit the back of the Ford truck.

Police said the Ford truck spun, rolled over once, and landed on its tires. The GMC truck came to a stop in a nearby ditch.

No serious injuries were reported, but RCPD said a child passenger in the Ford truck was taken by a parent to their doctor for a forehead laceration above the left eye.
