Injury Accident In Cawker City Wednesday Morning

Wednesday morning an injury accident occurred in Cawker City. It happened at the intersection of Highway 24 and Cawker Lane at about 7:50am.

34 year old Heather Schultz of Cawker City was driving south on Cawker Lane with a passenger 16 year old Lexa Adams in a 1995 GMC SUV approaching the highway when she failed to stop at the stop sign, causing a westbound vehicle to strike her SUV on the driver’s side.
