Two injured in I-70 wreck near Manhattan


GEARY CO. — A rollover accident involving a Toyota Land Cruiser driven by Alexander Zbarsky, 69, from California, on I-70 just east of the K-177 exit, shortly after 5 p.m. Friday resulted in injuries to two people.

Alexander Zbarsky was west bound on I-70, when he lost control of the vehicle and over corrected. The vehicle then over turned and came to rest in the north ditch.

Renata Zbarsky, 36, a passenger,  was life-flighted to Stormont Vail in Topeka with an injury thought to be serious, and Alexander Zbarsky, the driver, was taken away in an ambulance to Via Christi in Manhattan, with an injury thought to be minor. A minor was present in the vehicle, but was not found to have any injuries.

Both westbound lanes were temporarily closed and have since been reopened.

All passengers were reportedly wearing seat belts.
