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.
The vehicle that struck the SUV was driven by 17 year old Breana Riffel of Scandia. This caused a third vehicle to be involved in the accident rear-ending Riffel’s 2005 Pontiac car in the right-rear quarter while headed west.
The third vehicle involved was a 2012 Chevrolet vehicle driven by 52-year-old Rhonda Most of Downs.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Schultz, Adams, and Riffel were injured in the accident and taken to Mitchell County Hospital. It was also noted that all three were not wearing their seatbelts during the accident.
Most was not injured in the accident. Two of the three vehicles involved were taken to the owner’s property while Riffel’s Pontiac was towed by Krone’s Service Center in Beloit.
