NEOSHO CO., Kan. (WIBW) – A two-vehicle accident in Neosho Co. ended up with minor injuries to one person after an SUV flipped over and the other was knocked off the road.

The Kansas Highway Patrol crash log indicates that at about 10:20 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13, officials were called to the area of ​​K-39 and Harper Rd. with reports of an accident involving 2 vehicles.

When officials arrived, they found that a 2019 Chevrolet Equinox, driven by Robert D. Knabe, 73, of Edgerton, and a 1995 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Stephanie Swaggerty, 33, of Humboldt, were both heading west on the K. -39 when Swaggerty attempted a left turn onto Lakewood Ln.
