TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A man was taken to a local hospital following a two-vehicle collision Wednesday morning on a highway just east of Topeka, authorities said.

The collision was reported at 8;51 a.m. on K-4 highway, just north of US-40 highway.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol’s online crash log, a 2007 Ford F-150 pickup truck and a 2017 Ford Escape sport utility vehicle were traveling south on K-4 at the time of the collision.
