A 19 year-old woman from Mt. Hope was taken to a Wichita hospital following an accident in Reno County Thursday morning. It happened shortly before 9 o'clock in the 21000 of South Worthington Road.
The Reno County Sheriff's Office says Kelsey Schmidt was pulling out of a driveway when she spotted a northbound dump truck. She swerved to avoid the truck, but the driver, a 49 year-old Kingman man swerved into the lane to avoid the accident.
The two vehicles collided in the road. Firefighters from Haven and EMS had to extricate Schmidt from her car.
Schmidt was transported to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in Wichita but was released just a few hours later. The driver of the dump truck was not seriously hurt.
