Turnpike accident near El Dorado hurts Cottonwood Falls woman, Wichita man

A Cottonwood Falls woman and Wichita man suffered minor injuries in an accident on the Kansas Turnpike on Monday.


The Turnpike Authority says 20-year-old Kelly Ann Dorneker of Cottonwood Falls was northbound when she tried to avoid an unlisted object about 20 miles southwest of the Matfield Green service area or 10 miles northeast of the El Dorado exit shortly before 4:30 pm. Dorneker's car hit the center barrier wall, bounced off and hit a pickup driven by 45-year-old Khamsone Chanthavong of Wichita.

Both Dorneker and Chanthavong were treated at the scene and refused additional treatment.
