One sent to hospital after motorcycle-van crash along Highway 75
JACKSON CO., Kan. (WIBW) - One person has been taken to a Topeka hospital following a motorcycle-van crash on Highway 75 north of Mayetta.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 23, that officials were called to the area of Highway 75 and 190th Rd. with reports of a 2-vehicle collision including a motorcycle and a van.
Officials said the Kansas Highway Patrol and Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation Police joined them on the scene to help investigate.
KHP indicated that a 2005 Harley Davidson driven by Matthew J. Stegall, 43, of Topeka, had been headed north on the highway as a 1993 Chevrolet G20 van driven by Jimmy A. Tilloston, 73, of Circleville, was headed west on 190th Rd.
Officials said Tilloston failed to yield the right of way to Stegall which caused the motorcycle to collide with the van.
KHP noted that Stegall was taken to Stormont Vail in Topeka with suspected serious injuries while Tillostton was released at the scene with suspected minor injuries.
At the time, both the north and south lanes of the highway remain open, however, drivers have been urged to travel with caution through the area as emergency crews remain on the scene.
