Lawrence, KS (April 7, 2024) – A three-vehicle crash in the Lawrence area on Saturday, April 6, resulted in confirmed injuries. The accident was reported early that morning around 9:58 a.m. on US-40 EB near Clinton Parkway. A 2005 Buick Century driven by a 16-year-old Mayetta resident was traveling on the highway when he failed to stop for traffic and crashed into the rear of a 2016 Jeep Compass driven by 53-year-old Darla Odle of Abilene. 

The impact caused the Jeep to collide with a 2022 Toyota Camry driven by 49-year-old Wendy Compton of Lawrence. The crash caused all three vehicles to become disabled, and they had to be removed from the scene by responding tow trucks. Emergency crews were quickly dispatched to the scene to render aid to the involved parties. 

The Mayetta teen was hurt and transported by ambulance to Stormont Vail Hospital in Topeka for treatment. Odle was also injured and transferred to the same hospital.
