A 40-year-old Texas woman was injured in a one-vehicle crash late Monday night on K-33, north of Wellsville in Douglas County, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol report.
A 2012 Freightliner semi tractor driven by Stephen Martin, 44, San Antonio, was northbound on K-33 — as part of a construction detour route from I-35 — when Martin lost control of the truck and it went into the ditch about 11:18 p.m., according to the report. Martin was not injured, but his passenger, Michelle Shannon, Watauga, Texas, was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with undisclosed injures, the report said. She was not wearing a seat belt, according to the report.
