A Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper who was responding to the fires Tuesday afternoon was taken to Hays Medical Center after a crash on Toulon Road.
The KHP reported Master Trooper Shawn Summers was northbound on Toulon Road 2 miles north of Interstate 70 at about 1:45 p.m. with lights and sirens activated. He started to pass a 2015 Chevy Trax driven by Diana Ruth Clay, 52, Victoria, when she made a left turn and the KHP 2017 Ford Explorer struck the Chevy.
Summers was not injured but was transported to HMC, which is standard procedure, according to KHP Troop D Public Resource Officer Tod Hileman.
Clay was also taken to HMC with a possible injury. Both were wearing safety restraints, according to the KHP.
