An Emporia man was hurt in a one-car accident in northwest Emporia late Saturday morning.
Emporia Police Sgt. Scott Stormont says 38-year-old Chris Mejia was westbound on Schaeffer Way and stopped at the Prairie Street intersection before proceeding through. However, Mejia misjudged the slight jog across Prairie to 21st Street and crashed after 11 am.
Mejia was transported to Newman Regional Health, which does not release patient conditions to the media. It's unclear why Mejia crashed.
