The accident was reported at around 11:07 a.m. on US-77 near mile marker 149. Local reports indicated that a 2020 Mazda and a 2019 Buick Enclave were headed southbound on the highway when the Buick rear-ended the Mazda. 

The impact caused the Mazda to veer into oncoming traffic, where it collided with an oncoming 2021 International semi-trailer. The driver of the Mazda was later identified as Rosemarie C. Norris of Junction City. The driver of the Buick was later identified as Judy K. Sanford of White City. 

One of the drivers was transported to Stormont Vail Flint Hills Hospital for treatment of sustained injuries.
