KTA crash near Topeka injures five Emporians

Three Emporia men, an Emporia woman and an Emporia child were hurt in Saturday's accident on the Kansas Turnpike near Topeka.


The Turnpike Authority says a car driven bu 34-year-old Santos Portillo hit a pickup driven by 37-year-old Bradley Weilert of Olathe as Weilert was trying to make a U-turn.

Portillo, 24-year-old Roberto Sandoval and 22-year-old Duarte Sandoval were hurt. So were 25-year-old Isabella Portillo and 9-month-old Nehemis Portillo. All five were hospitalized, but the Turnpike Authority crash log never says where crash victims go for treatment.

Weilert was not hurt.
