A head-on crash about 19 miles east of Garden City, Kansas, left one person hospitalized Christmas Eve.
The accident happened at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday on Highway 156 at the 22 mile marker in Finney County. Kansas Highway Patrol said the driver of an eastbound Honda Civic for some reason lost control, crossed the center line and struck a westbound Dodge pickup truck.
Investigators said the driver of the pickup tried to avoid the crash by swerving and applying brakes. The impact left both vehicles with extensive damage. The impact caused the car to spin around facing the opposite direction, while the truck rolled once landing on its wheels in a ditch.
The driver of the car, 62-year-old Gene Boreyko of Overland Park, Kansas, was not hurt, but the driver of the truck, 60-year-old Vicky Borell of Utica, Kansas, was taken to Garden City Memorial for treatment of injuries. Troopers said both drivers had their seat belts on.
