A Shawnee County woman escaped serious injuries after a frightening accident on I-70 yesterday morning.
It happened at around 9:15 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of I-70
A Topeka Police Department shift commander says Karla Perez-Sanchez's vehicle hit a barrier wall and flipped on its top, ejecting her from the vehicle. She was taken to a hospital with what were originally considered to be serious injuries but later updated to just minor injuries.
Traffic was shut down in the right lane while officers tended to the accident. It was re-opened about an hour and a half later.
