A crash on Interstate 70 in an Ellsworth County construction zone sends two people to the hospital in Salina.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, two cars were headed east on I-70, entering a construction zone where lanes narrowed from two lanes to one in both directions of travel. One of the cars rear-ended the other.
Two people in the car that was rear-ended were hurt. They are 52-year-old Wendy Duncan-Burkinshaw and 54-year-old Mark Burkinshaw, both from Lake Jackson, Texas. They were transported to Salina Regional Health Center.
The driver of the other car, 39-year-old Layla Berguland from Colorado Springs, Colorado, was not hurt.
Troopers say that everyone in both cars was buckled up.
The crash happened just before 10:00 Monday morning, about a half-mile west of the K-232 I70 Junction on I-70 in Ellsworth County.
