Woman hospitalized after wreck near Admire

An investigation is underway into why an Osage City woman crashed into a grove of small trees near Admire early Friday morning.


Lyon County Deputy Doug Stump says 43-year-old Sandra Nicholson was southbound in the 3300 block of Road "U," or about five miles east of Admire, when the wreck happened shortly before 6 am. Nicholson apparently drove straight off the road into the trees.

Nicholson was taken to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka. Her condition has not been released, but her injuries are not considered life-threatening. Nicholson was not wearing her seat belt.

Emporia-Lyon County EMS and Miller first responders provided medical care on site.
