A trio of crashes were reported over the weekend west of Goodland on I-70.

 

According to KansasScreen shot 2013-11-25 at 6.11.18 AM Highway Patrol reports, 36-year-old Jacob Gardner and 22-year-old Sarah Freeman of Bloomington, Indiana were traveling westbound on I-70 when their jeep drove over a patch of ice and went into the median where the car rolled once. Freeman, the passenger in her car, was not wearing her seatbelt and Gardner was wearing his.

 

Both were taken to Goodland Regional Medical Center for injuries.

 

Later in the day, an SUV carrying four California natives traveling westbound on I-70 struck the back of an unoccupied tow truck. 61 -ear-old Godoy Mendoza, 50-year-old Blancha Mendoza, and minors Maria and Ashley Mendoza were all taken to Goodland Regional Medical for injuries.

 

The unoccupied tow track reportedly had all of its emergency lights on when the crash occurred.

 

The third crash reported involved an 18-year-old from Ohio, Elyse Green, who also rolled her vehicle due to driving over ice on the highway.

 

Reports indicate she was wearing her seatbelt and sustained minor injuries.

 

All of the crashes reportedly occurred between Goodland and the Colorado border.
