RICHMOND — A Garnett woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash about 7:20 a.m. Thursday on U.S. 59, about one mile north of Richmond.
A 2004 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Myranda Topp, 29, Garnett, was northbound on U.S. 59, near the highway’s intersection with Cloud Road, when the Grand Am drifted onto the shoulder and over-corrected, coming across the southbound lanes where it was struck on the passenger side by a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan driven by Randy Bishop, 46, Ottawa, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol report.
Topp was transported by ambulance to Overland Park Regional Medical Center with undisclosed injuries, the report said.
Bishop might have suffered “possible injuries” but did not require transport to an area hospital, according to the report.
Franklin County Sheriff’s deputies assisted the highway patrol at the crash scene. Bishop was wearing a seat belt, but Topp was not wearing a safety restraint, according to the report.
