Accident outside Flying J sends two to NRH

Two people were hurt in an accident just west of Emporia on Tuesday night.

Lyon County Deputy Doug Stump says authorities were called to Flying "J" for a one-car crash just before 8:15 pm.

The driver, Gilbert Michel, was westbound after leaving the travel plaza. Michel drove down the center median, waiting for a semi to pass, but didn't see the center guard rail and hit it.

Michel and his passenger, Catherine Michel, were both taken to Newman Regional Health. Stump says the injuries are minor.

The accident is under investigation.
