A two vecicle accident on highway 24 sends two people to the hospital.
Brianna Engle (17) and Joel Force (34), both of Manhattan, were taken to Mercy Regional Health Center following the accident on highway 24, three miles west of manhattan. Force was treated and later released.
The Kansas Highway Patrol reports Engle was driving a 2001 Volvo and was attempting to turn west on 48th Street. She apparently did not see a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 driven by Justin Richardson (17) of Manhattan, which was eastbound on highway 24, and the vehicles collided.
Force was a passenger in Richardson’s vehicle. Richardson reportedly had a possible injury but there are no indications he was taken to the hospital.
The accident was reported at about 5:30 Wednesday night. All those involved had seatbelts on.
