Olathe Crash Seriously Injures Driver

A male in his 20's is in serious to critical condition after a 1-vehicle crash at Northgate and Woodland in Olathe KS..

The wreck occurred just after 2:45 p.m. Monday afternoon when the man lost control of the vehicle at around 40 to 45 m.p.h. and struck a tree.

The driver was reportedly ejected "about 20 feet away" from the vehicle and he was taken to a JoCo KS trauma center by MEDACT-EMS.

The crash required rescuers to slow trains on the BSNF mainline tracks until the wreckage was cleared about 45 minutes later.
