Grant County Accidents

A Kansas woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon in Grant County. The Sheriff’s Department says 72 year old Phyllis Klima of Topeka, Kansas, was operating her vehicle on the Highway 151 exit 22 off ramp when she didn’t yield to oncoming traffic at the intersection and collided with a pickup truck driven by 49 year old Beth Mcvay of Platteville, causing the truck to roll over. Kilma was taken to the hospital by EMS and was cited for failure to yield to right of way from stop sign.

On Friday evening Grant County authorities responded to a crash in Fennimore. 48 year old Ryan Brudos of Muskego was westbound on USH 18 when he encountered a group of cattle in the roadway. Brudos was unable to avoid striking one of the animals, sending the animal into the eastbound lane of travel. 50 year old Scott Jones of Evansville was traveling eastbound on 18 and struck the same cow. Jones lost control of his vehicle and entered the south ditch where he struck a road sign. Brudos and his three passengers were all wearing seat belts and not injured in the crash. Jones sustained minor injuries and was wearing his seat belt. The cow involved in the crash died at the scene. The owner of the cattle, Jacob Esch, of rural Fennimore was cited for Livestock at Large.
