TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - One person suffered critical injuries in a single-vehicle crash Monday morning in central Topeka, police said.

The crash was reported around 11 a.m. at S.W. 21st and Lincoln streets.

Police at the scene told 13 NEWS that a black Chevrolet Versa was traveling east on 21st when the driver apparently attempted to make a left-hand turn onto northbound Lincoln.

The driver lost control of the vehicle, which slammed into a concrete retaining wall on the northeast corner of S.W. 21st and Lincoln.

Police Lt. Manny Munoz said the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when it crashed.

The driver was transported to a Topeka hospital by American Medical Response ambulance, which left the scene with its lights and siren activated.

His condition wasn’t available early Monday afternoon.

Westbound traffic on S.W. 21st was diverted at S.W. Buchanan.
