It was reported that a 2012 Ford F-150 pickup truck and a 2023 Ford Bronco were headed eastbound on the interstate when a 2011 Nissan Murano merged into the pickup’s lane. The driver of the F-150, 24-year-old Connor William Sivils of Inman, had to change lanes to avoid crashing into the Nissan. The pickup then hit the blindspot of the Bronco, causing both of the vehicles to rotate. The driver of the Nissan, 23-year-old Kassie Elaine Adms of Meriden, then hit the Bronco. 

The Bronco driver, 59-year-old Richard Ray Owings of Olathe, was not injured in the accident.
