On Wednesday, September 26, 2012, at about 10:16 a.m., emergency responders were dispatched to 4th and Kansas for a report of an injury accident. It was reported that a vehicle struck a pedestrian.
Emergency responders found that a 56 year old male had been struck by a vehicle. The man was transported to Southwest Medical Center by Seward County Emergency Medical Services with apparent non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators determined that a black 2011 Dodge Durango driven by an 18 year old female was turning north onto Kansas Avenue from west 4th Street. The male pedestrian was walking westbound across Kansas Avenue in the crosswalk. The driver of the Durango did not see the pedestrian and struck him with her vehicle.
The driver was issued a citation for inattentive driving and failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
