Two injury accidents were reported in Geary County Wednesday, with at least one attributed to slick road conditions. Elijah Lewis, 25, of Fort Riley and Kody Seiler, 19, of California were both taken to Geary Community Hospital following a Wednesday evening accident on I-70 near the westbound Fort Riley exit. Lewis was driving a 1990 Nissan Skyline eastbound on I-70 when the vehicle hydroplaned and struck a guardrail, re-entered the roadway where it was struck by a Mack Diesel truck towing three trailers. Seiler was a passenger in Lewis’s vehicle. The truck driver was not injured.
And in a Wednesday morning accident on I-70 a quarter mile west of highway 77, a 2005 International truck tractor driven by Matthew Weah, 42, of Kansas City, Missouri went out of control, entering the center median and causing the tractor to overturn, coming to rest on the passenger side. Weah was taken to Geary Community Hospital.
