No one was injured in a late Wednesday head-on crash resulting from a wrong-way driver northeast of Topeka.

 

Shawnee County sheriff’s Sgt. Harry Louderback said the crash was reported around 10:30 p.m. at N.E. Seward Avenue and K-4 highway.

According to Louderback, the collision occurred when the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo entered the wrong ramp while attempting to get onto N.E. K-4 highway from Seward Avenue.

The Chevrolet collided head-on with a 2012 Toyota Tundra pickup truck that had exited K-4 highway and was approaching Seward Avenue, Louderback said.

The driver of the Chevrolet, identified as Timothy Green III, 25, of Kansas City, Mo., and an 18-year-old female passenger in the car sustained minor injuries and refused medical treatment after being seen by first-responders and American Medical Response ambulance personnel at the scene. Louderback said both were wearing their seat belts. Green was cited for driving the wrong way and not having a valid driver’s license.

The Toyota pickup truck was driven by Jamin Halladay, of Topeka. He was wearing his seat belt and also refused to be transported by ambulance for further medical treatment for what were described as minor injuries.

The exit ramp was closed for a short time before being reopened.
