Council Grove residents hospitalized after crash in Florence

A crash in a Marion County roundabout led to two Council Grove residents being treated at separate hospitals Friday.


The Kansas Highway Patrol says 57-year-old Karen Billett was southbound on U.S. Highway 77 and going through a roundabout in Florence. Billett apparently failed to yield to a truck also going through and hit it.

Billett was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Marion, while a passenger, 51-year-old Stephen Thompson, was taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. Neither were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.

The truck driver, 49-year-old Julie Wells of Neal, was not hurt.
