A crash south of Meade sent a Meade man to the hospital Monday evening. The crash occurred about seven miles south of Meade on K23 at U Road. The Kansas Highway Patrol reports 31 year old Jame Loren Coles was driving an F150 pickup south on K23 preparing to turn left. When he started to turn onto U road, an unknown vehicle passed him on the left side at a high rate of speed. Coles then jerked the car back right, then turned left again and was struck on the drivers door by a Dodge pickup. Both pickups came to rest in the ditch in the southeast corner of the intersection. Coles was injured and taken to Meade District Hospital. He was not wearing a seat belt.
