One person injured in crash on smoky highway south of Wamego


A Wamego man was seriously injured Sunday following a two-vehicle crash in Wabaunsee County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 28-year-old Cody Boggs was southbound on Highway 99 near Paw Paw Creek Road when his Ford Escape rear ended a semi that had come to an almost complete stop due to low visibility caused by smoke. Boggs was transported to Wamego Health Center with a suspected serious injury. The truck driver was not injured.

The crash happened just before 11 a.m. Sunday and closed the roadway for about two hours.
