One person was air lifted from a motor vehicle accident Monday near St. George.
The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office says the crash, which occurred around 11 a.m. involved two passenger cars at the intersection of Highway 24 and Blackjack Road. Both cars were eastbound at the time of the crash. The drivers of both vehicles were the only occupants involved in the crash.
Eastbound lanes were shut down for a little over an hour and a Lifestar helicopter transported one of the unidentified individuals to a Topeka hospital for treatment. The crash remains under further investigation. No other details were immediately released.
Sheriff’s deputies were assisted at the scene by rural firefighters, Pottawatomie County EMS and the St. George Police Department.
